Perfect Effects 8 for free

We all love free stuff right ? 🙂

This happened before – but has come back up.  OnOne are giving their Perfect Effects 8 software away for free until May 12th. Worth getting it even if you don’t use just now.

I downloaded it last time and not used it really (Also have Nik Color Effex) but may do later when I have more time to play with it.

New War Photography film : A Thousand Times Goodnight

I seem to have developed a habit of mentioning or featuring films and books on War/Conflict photography or it’s photographers. It’s not something I want to do but it has fascinated me in the past – I think it’s the potential to get such powerful images and also try to help the world get better.

 

Aaaanyway, another has just popped up in my news feeds – A thousand Times Goodnight

AThousand

This is a “inspired by” type film rather than documentary.

Check tag cloud for a word like “Conflict Photography” to see the other mentions – book and videos.

I have Bang-Bang club the film but yet to watch it (read the book a while ago)
