Our own Daniel Shirey took second place in the National Press Photographers Association’s Region Six Monthly Clip Contest for his photo of Knowshon Moreno leaping earlier this year

Nice pic. 

Reuters has posted a 10 minute video that shows how they set up their remote cameras and can now transmit a photo to their clients within minutes of a shuttle launch.

Very cool. 

Yeah, I know … it’s been kind of slow here on the blog. We’re at that point in the semester where everything is piling up on my desk – student work, new course proposals, curriculum review, international proposals for 2010 …

BUT – this came across Twitter a few moments ago (thanks to Ryan Sholin) and it’s too good not to share: The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is looking for a social media intern
It turns out all those hours on Facebook might pay off for you. Who’d a thunk it?

Thom Hogan has posted his predictions on what camera goodies we’ll see in 2009. Real inside baseball stuff, but the talk about market share is something to pay attention to. While we focus on storytelling, there’s an industry that provides us with the tools to do that storytelling – it’s mildly important that we pay attention to that industry.

David Burnett, founder of Contact Press Images and an all-around amazing guy, has published a behind-the-scenes-look at covering this summer’s Olympics in Beijing. Long, but if you’re a Burnett fan, worth watching. 

The student paper here at UGA, The Red & Black, has started doing a weekly news update – a short video highlighting what’s coming up in the week’s paper. Each one has gotten a little smoother, a little more polished. They’ve played with the format a couple of times and the newest iteration came out this week with a walk-around-the-newsroom idea.

Does it work? 

Here it is – how the home page evolved throughout election day.

Very cool.

South of Here is a collection of multimedia pieces produced by students from the University of North Carolina School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Facultad de Communicaciòn at the Universidad de los Andes in Santidago, Chile. 

An interesting mix of storytelling – audio slide shows, videos and Flash animations. 

Passed along by former UGA PJ student Kat Netzler, a look at almost two years on the campaign trail with Barack Obama by Scout Tufankjian

As many of you know, our workshops are modeled after those run by the photojournalism folks at my alma mater, Syracuse University. They had their fall event a few weeks back and have posted their pieces online, take a look and let me know what you think. 

More students, more faculty, more guests … how do we beat them in the spring? (He said with a sly grin.)
