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 Kate Holt, Juan Bautista Herrera, setting custom Lightroom Develop module defaults and Hip Hop Hop.

  • Opium poppies and cannabis aren't the only Afghan exports. Photographer Kate Holt documents the Afghan emerald industry in Panjshir Valley. With $1 trillion in minerals, the country can't attract mining companies to the unstable region so these gems are mined by hand.
  • Juan Bautista Herrera has launched Republic of Humanity on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to combat the "unprecedented levels of negative rhetoric regarding race, gender, religion, ethnic and national origins." The goal of the new photo platform is "to break through our feelings of disconnectedness and help us understand that we are part of something larger."
  • In Setting Custom Defaults, Adobe's Benjamin Warde explains how to set custom defaults in Lightroom.
  • Ed Greenberg and Jack Reznicki have just published the final installment of Hip Hop Hop, which looks at "how the record industry treats infringers and the lessons that photographers can learn from their efforts." For your convenience (which is how we tend to do things in these Horns), here are links to Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
