Class of 2016

CIS and Studio Art major

My name is Daniel Stein. I am a senior here at JMU studying Computer Information Systems as well as Studio Art with a concentration in Photography.  

I have been working for the John C. Wells Planetarium since my first semester of freshman year, and have been working towards my goal of sharing the serenity of the night sky with everyone since.  I accomplish this by utilizing my passions of photography and cinematography by pointing my cameras towards the cosmos.  

Thanks to the Planetarium, I gained the necessary knowledge to accurately capture images of some of the darkest skies on the east coast; some of which are just a forty minute drive from Harrisonburg.  In order to further achieve these goals, the Planetarium and I are working together in an effort to eliminate light pollution in Harrisonburg by producing a full dome video which illustrates the problem at hand.  By the time I graduate, hopefully everyone will have the chance to see the same night sky I capture with my cameras here at JMU!
