Ever watched a sports match on TV with the sun shining across the stadium so that part is in shadow? The TV crews must go nuts as they try to keep the picture easy on the eye as the ball and players move in and out of shadows. It seems such a simple problem to solve but then the TV people solved it by scheduling games under floodlights where the light is mostly uniform across the pitch.
Then I read this excellent post on the technology required to make Super Bowl fun to watch. Shadows are nothing with all this technology.
