p.1 #1 · Detroit Silverdome lighting


How is the Detroit Silverdome lighting? I am shooting ultimate (disc sport) there Saturday.

Thanks for any help. My searches did not help.

I haven't shot there, but I'm guessing if you go into this shoot with this general mindeset you'll be fine:

Fast glass, wide open, and as high ISO as necessary to get you around 1/640 or higher.

Good luck.

Thanks.

I'd mostly shot at Franklin Field in Philadelphia (ISO 5000 / 1/500).

I shot at NE High School in Philadelphia on Thu, and the light fell off - almost off a cliff - at the endzone away from the two center panels of lights.

Brian,

I am located in Michigan, but not familiar with anything called the Detroit Metrodome..

I'm not saying it doesn't exist... just not familiar with it..

Do you have an address? Or, any other info?

Perhaps a search of "Pontiac Silverdome" might help...

Here is some information about the Pontiac Silverdome.. The former home of our beloved Detroit Lions...

Hope this helps a little..

Sincerely,
Randal

I thought Detroit played in the New Ford Field. Do they still even use the Silverdome for anything?

Matt,

You are 100% correct.. The Detroit Lions play at Ford Field.

I am not sure what the Pontiac Silverdome is used for, these days..

I suppplied a link in my prior post for the Pontiac Silverdome... Perhaps by clicking on the link and/or Google search, might assist... Again, I'm not sure..

Years ago...., I went there to watch Concerts, Lions games, and Monster truck shows.... Oh, the good ole' days...


Sincerely,
Randal

Sorry, I meant Silverdome.

From the above-mentioned link:
Photography
The lighting inside the Silverdome is designed to capture the natural sunlight that filters through the translucent roof and to provide a balance between that sunlight and the artificial lights that surround the perimeter inside the Silverdome. (On a dark, overcast day or during events held during late afternoon or evening hours, the outside lighting will have no effect on exposure.)

Recommended film speed under all conditions: ASA 400

When photographing events on the playing field (lighting tends to be less in the stands), the recommended exposure is:
For early evening or night events: 1/125 of a second with a lens aperture of F 5.6
For events held during sunny days: 1/250 of a second with a lens aperture of F 5.6
Various other exposure combinations may be used, but they must be equivalent to the above to be correctly exposed for best color.
The lights inside the Silverdome match very closely that of natural sunlight. It is recommended that, when other types of color films are used, great care be taken to ensure that the film is the daylight type.

So jealous of the lighting afforded by those venues supporting TV broadcasts... 3 stops of light better than a halfway decent high school gym. Oh the luxuries of light.

The only thing the Silverdome was used for that I knew of was rollerskating on Sundays, but I don't know if they still have that.
