To make this observation process objective it should include measurement, but this raises a problem: how do we measure the adaptation level? 2) are quite expensive devices, and generally they measure luminance in a narrow cone, so that an average measure of the field of view would involve working out the mean of many spot measurements. The practical solution is to measure eye illuminance. An illuminance meter is a more simple instrument that measures the density of luminous flux incident at a point on a surface in lux, where one lux is one lumen per square metre.

11 shows reflectance from a typical glass surface plotted against the angle of incidence. 11. 1 0 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 Incident angle (degrees) 70 80 90 Unpolarized Perpendicular polarized Parallel polarized light increases gradually at first, and then sharply. Regular reflection is sometimes called specular reflection, and where both regular and diffuse reflection occur, the portion of reflected light that is due to regular reflection may be called the specular component. 12(a), a ray encounters a boundary to a dense medium and is refracted towards the normal.

For example, the perceived hue and saturation of an object may be influenced by the colour-rendering properties of the lamps. If a nominally white light source is used, this will have a quite subtle effect on the appearance of the object, which may nonetheless be appreciated. However, if a distinctly coloured effect is produced, it is likely to be perceived as an attribute of the illumination rather than of the object or surface. It is an important observation to distinguish between aspects of appearance that are perceived in an object mode, that is to say, which are perceived to be attributes of a recognized object, and aspects that are perceived in illumination mode, which means that they are recognized as attributes of the lighting.
