New blog post about a high school basketball game I freelanced for last night. Very exciting game it was. http://goo.gl/hNSie

Thats what I thought, and why I didn't do it till that night. But due to my space limitations, the 70-200 on the crop was too much, and the 50 allowed me a little bit extra space, and more light (I shot mainly at f/2 with the 50). Also with having the 5D shooting cross court, it was easier to get action with the slower fps.

I will also add myself to this pile. I am currently in a temporary position at Knox College, my alma mater ('12), as college photographer. I don't only take photos, I have plenty experience with video, social media, journalistic writing, graphic design, and managing groups. I would be happy to consider a wide variety of jobs available in the higher ed communications area as my contract with Knox finishes up. Feel free to go to my LinkedIn for more info on me: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/john-williams/26/b9b/94b/

As Gabbi said before me, any heads up on open positions would be great.

Thanks for the tip Sirinya, but I don't think I really qualify for the years of experience.

Haven't been too active on Google+ recently, so lets turn this around and start off with sharing my website, which was redesigned a few months ago. http://john-williams-photography.com/ I also suggest going to my blog to see some more of my recent work.

>> Introductions  - 
 
I guess I never introduced myself. Hi, I am John Williams, I am the college photographer at Knox College (Galesburg, IL). I also oversee the college's Twitter, and help out in other social media (Facebook, Foursquare, Flickr, etc.). I am a recent alum of Knox ('12) and currently in a temp position, but could lead to a contract extension (fingers crossed). In my first 6 months here, I have started our twitter presence from next to nothing; pushed a more cohesive social media landscape with the use of Hootsuite; and started up our Foursquare presence (but thats still very fresh). On the photography side, I am ever pushing to build our stock image portfolio, I reorganized the photo filing system we have, and taking tons of photos.

Due to my newness to the world of higher ed communications and my temp position, I am excited to learn and network. This group has been great for the few days I've been in here and I'm glad to be a part of it.

Has anyone heard of "One Average Day"? It was a photojournalism project in Oregon in July 1983. A few dozen photographers captured one day in Oregon. From midnight to midnight. I found a book of the images but can't find it online anywhere. There are some really amazing images and it does an awesome job of showing the culture of Oregon in the 80's.
