Photography Faculty member Jeff Curto has authored a multimedia, multi-touch Basic Photography e-Book. The book can be viewed on an iPad or on any Mac computer using OS X “Mavericks.” And… it’s available to anyone free of charge.
“I wanted to make something that both students and faculty alike could use in the classroom or at home to enhance their understanding of basic photographic concepts” Curto said. The book covers different types of cameras both film and digital, as well as sections on lenses, exposure, composition and more. Enhanced with video, interactive images and other unique learning experiences, the book is a great way to either review the basics of photography or to learn them for the first time.

Have you ever considered spending a semester abroad?
For the fall semester of 2014, COD Photo Program faculty member Jeff Curto will be teaching photography for the University of Georgia’s Study Abroad program in Cortona, Tuscany.
In addition to photography, students can study Italian, painting, drawing, ceramics, history, Italian culture and more. The program is open to any undergraduate, so COD students are eligible. Cortona is an incredibly beautiful hill town, famous in its own right, but made more so by the book and movie Under the Tuscan Sun, which takes place there.

Congratulations to College of DuPage Photo Alum Robin Tryloff, whose timeless portrait of her Father, Warren, was chosen for the Advertising Photographers of America Midwest’s exhibit, “Artist’s Perspective” in December. Robin’s image was one of 26 that were selected for the show.
The gallery show was juried by Susan Aurinko of the Chicago Artists Coalition, Teresa Rad of TBWA/Chiat Day, and Kristen Walsh of Arnold Worldwide. It was held at the Chicago Art Department Gallery.
Robin Tryloff is an editorial photographer with a strong interest in social documentary work. Her service in the nonprofit field, prior to her photography career, has led to projects for a number of nonprofit organizations.
