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

Snow Queen SuperShoot
The LCC photography students transformed their photo studio into a Winter Wonderland
the week of March 13th, 2017 as students from the Photo program built a fantastic snowy
scene for a day of photographing costumed characters from the Snow Queen theater production.
The large winter scene included 20 flocked trees, over 120 gallons of instant snow, 200 pounds
of potato flakes and the 20 x 30 foot backdrop created for the Dart auditorium production. Seven
cast members from the theater production were photographed by LCC photo students during the 6 hour
photo session on Thursday March 16th. Setup of the winter scene started on Monday the 13th with
construction of the set continuing through Thursday morning when over a hundred gallons of artificial
snow were added to create the final scene. A large number of photo students participated in the even
including helping to paint and flock the trees, mix artificial snow and lighting. LCC faculty member
Jeff Hamlin and DMAC students also joined the fun during Thursday afternoon capturing video footage of costumed characters in the winter scene.
“We have wanted to stage a big production shoot like this for a couple of years now” said LCC
Photo Faculty Chair Ike Lea. “We wanted to be able to create a project where students could get
the experience of working on a large production that incorporated building a set and coordinating
with costumes and models”. “We also had the opportunity to coordinate with the DMAC program to light
a large set and shoot both stills and video in the same session.”
Thanks to the LCC theater department, Bob Fernholz and the Snow Queen cast members for all of
their help in pulling off a great project. Special thanks to the Costume Shop personnel and Marina
and Morgan White. A special thanks also to Bob’s Red Mill for donating 200 pounds of potato flakes
to use as snow and thanks to Ryan Cummins for helping to make it happen.
