Anyone shot at Northern Arizona U - Walkup Skydome?

->> I'm traveling to cover high school football game next month - Sollenbeger Classic - at Northern Arizona University's Walkup Skydome in Flagstaff.

Anyone familiar with this stadium - I checked the Sports Shooter "guide" and found nothing listed. I mainly want to know what lighting is like inside this dome?

Thanks for any information you can provide.

->> Todd,

Walkup is pretty dark (think 1/500th 3200 2.8 or so), and has an interesting orange dome that makes white balance more painful than usual.

E-mail me if you need any more info. I can look for some images I shot there if you need.

->> I went to college there and photographed in Walkup. That was more than 10 years ago. I do remember that, when I worked for the Flagstaff paper, the school was really cool about letting us set up lights in the catwalks. It really helped things a ton. Might be something to consider if you have lights you can bring.
