The lighting at NN is generally pretty good. 4 large banks of lights produce decent results.

Close by dinner recommendations:
NN is right on Ogden Ave, with tons of places to eat. It is also minutes away from downtown Naperville with even more places to eat.

Parking:
NN has two sides to it's parking, a smaller lot right off of Ogden; and larger lot off of Mill street. I have also seen them park people in the grass off of Mill street for overflow parking.

Mt Prospect, IL
Map

Field type:
Grass

Lighting:
The lighting on this field is terrible! No question about it. Four poles hold up what looks like bank of home depot style work lights that give off a slight color cast and generally enough light to see on the field.

Custom WB is a must, flash is recommended. (I used it half the game last time.)

Settings w/o flash: ISO 3200, f2.8, -3/4 to -1 fstop, 1/200 – 1/250 shutter.

Concession stand:
Concession stand is general fare hot dogs with okay pizza from a local place.

Close by dinner recommendations:


Parking:
They have a good sized parking lot, but it is a disaster to get out of. I recommend getting there early and finding a spot close to the exit if you don’t want to fight to get out.

Libertyville

Libertyville
708 W Park Ave
Libertyville, IL 60048

Map

Field type:
Field Turf

Lighting:
The lighting is a little on the sparse side, 4 main light poles with two rows of lights, but is overall is adequate, pretty even across the field. Home team wears orange with black.

Average settings: ISO 3200, f2.8, -1/3, 1/350 – 1/800. End zones are pretty dark as all lighting is from the side and behind.

Concession stand:
They have an excellent concession stand. Some cattle company runs the grill, and burgers are actually tasty with fresh toppings such as lettuce onions and pickles to be had nearby.

Close by dinner recommendations:


Parking:
The main parking lot is right next to the field, but is small. Arrive early to get a good spot or else park in the neighborhood across the street to avoid the traffic nightmare that the lot will create.

Wheaton Warrenville South (WWS)

Wheaton Warrenville South High School

Wheaton, IL 60187

Map

Field type:
Field Turf

Lighting:
For being a semi newer field with field turf WWS is a dark field. They have 4 main light poles with quite a few lights, but they are either set back too far, or just not that bright. Home team wears an almost all black uniform.

ISO 3200, f2.8, -2/3, shutter range 1/250 – 1/350 depending upon field position.
End zone is dark.

Concession stand:
Basic hot dogs, hamburgers, and ordered pizza with cans of soda.

Close by dinner recommendations:
Butterfield / 355 interchange is only 10 minutes or so away with multiple chain options as well as downtown Naperville.

Parking:
The main lot is kind of small; if you don’t arrive early enough you will be parking in the neighborhood across the street.
