When I started creating “METRO ELEMENTS” I had 2 goals in mind, adding to my grainy recipes to have another organic film like option and to have solid everyday walk around type recipe for my X-H1.
Just like with “REFRACTED ROSE” and “C-3400” I used the combination of -4 sharpness and a strong grain setting. This has been really effective in achieving a film like vibe for me. Unlike “C-3400”, “METRO ELEMENTS” uses an auto white balance setting. This is what makes it versatile. You don’t have to worry about any unwanted color casts.
“METRO ELEMENTS” is another recipe that I want to test out at night soon. I hope you’re able to use it a night as well as the day.
Take look at some images samples using this recipe and find the settings for it after the photos.
