In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at a thoughtful discussion on the role and nature of photography, media companies' payment policies, free Develop presets for Lightroom and Neil Cybart.

  • Vikas Shah at Thought Economics asks Is Humanity Defined By Its Images? in a series of interviews with photographers David Bailey CBE and Albert Watson; Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands a patron of the World Press Photo Foundation; and Francis Hodgson, co-founder of the Pictet Prize.
  • Greenberg and Reznicki at The Copyright Zone insist They Lie when members of the media say, "We don't pay for news." Amateurs with smartphones, apparently, are giving away the store. It may surprise them, they suggest, to learn the media companies themselves license those gifts to others.
  • Julienne Kost makes her Develop Presets Available for Lightroom CC, which include "converting color images to grayscale, color toning using both the Split Tone and Tone Curve panels, selective color removal, lens correction and grain and post crop vignetting."
  • Neil Cybart suggests Apple is Betting Big on the Camera after the device began "turning into another pair of eyes and an Internet connection allowed others to see the world through those eyes."

More to come...
