Photographic Imaging Technology

Composition, Color, and Craftsmanship define today's digital photographer. If you enjoy taking photographs - consider making it a career or taking classes for personal interest.

Photographers need to have a good eye for composition, imagination, and creativity, as well as a good technical understanding of photography. The LCC Photo Program can help you achieve your personal and/or professional goals.

Grand Ledge's Lincoln Brick Park was the setting for LCC Photography's 2014 "Shot in the Dark" as 36 students, graduates, faculty and friends lit up the night for this annual project. The group captured a dramatic photo amidst abandoned buildings using a process called Painting With Light. A tripod-mounted camera with an 80+ second exposure was used while participants used flashes and flashlights to illuminate the scene. There have been five Shot in the Dark productions since 2008 in such locations as Francis Park, Mt. Hope Cemetery, Turner-Dodge Mansion, and the LCC Shigematsu Gardens.
