LANSING COMMUNITY COLLEGE

 

CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Photographic Imaging

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0277  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

The field of photography is vast and diverse with a wide range of employment opportunities.  Professionals include everyone from the traditional person with a camera, to a lab or service bureau employee, to someone working at a high-end computer station.  Skill requirements fall into two categories, visual and technical.  Visual skills include idea development, composition, lighting, and communication.  Technical skills include practical and theoretical knowledge of cameras and other photographic-related equipment, light sensitive materials, processes, and digital-based imaging equipment and software. A "photographer" may be self-employed, be a member of a small team, or be employed by a large company. Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges. Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

 

PREREQUISITES
Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section for skills assessment and advising information.
