Lighting Question for Fresno State's Bulldog Stadium

->> I'm photographing the Nebraska-Fresno State football game on Saturday evening and I was wondering if anyone knew the camera exposure for shooting under the lights. Thanks!

->> The last time I shot a game there was 3 years ago and it was pretty darn dark. Looking at the data from the files: ISO 2500; 1/400 @ f/2.8 with a Nikon D3S and a 400mm f2.8 (and that was slightly under exposed). Hopefully they have bumped up the lighting since then.

If it hasn't gotten significantly dimmer and you're using the latest cameras that can shoot at ISO 3200-6400 it will be ok.

The light starts to fall off around the 20 yard line and the endzones are a good 1-stop or more darker than between the 20s.

Get there early, parking's a bitch and traffic along Shaw and Cedar Aves. will be slow.

->> ISO 4,000, f/2.8 800 shutter will be fine.

You should have gotten a parking pass with your cred and it's in the practice field, entrance on the west side of the stadium (opposite Cedar Ave.).

->> Oh, and Robert's right, the light falls off in both end zones.

WIFI in the press box is very good; there's very little food unless you get there early, but unlimited drinks. Folks at FSU are very nice and accommodating so don't be afraid to ask if you need something.
