If it were me, I would start out shooting this in Aperture priority at f8 or so, center weighted or spot metered and use the blinkies to get minimum blowout of the picture and play with it in post porcessing. I would also play with the picture control settings in camera as you are shooting JPG and see what gives you the best color.
