Light artifacts-Equine Thermal Imaging application
Hi there, just new to this field of work and trying to recognize issues while in the field, so I can have clean images for my reports when I get back to the office.
Light artifacts are my question right now. I know what they are, and I know what can cause them but I am not 100% sure I am recognizing them when I am looking through my viewfinder while doing the job.
A sunbeam coming through a window, easy to see. But if an artificial light above the horse is causing a light artifact, or if natural light coming in from somewhere else is creating an issue, (Are Shadows an issue?)I am not recognizing that.

I did my course online so I was unable to address this in a classroom situation and now realizing that I need this shown to me somehow. Is there a video that can show an example as it is happening perhaps? While looking through the viewfinder? (I own a Flir E8) A moving horse can make things challenging enough, let alone making sure the image is clean. Smile

Thank you for any help you can give. Rolleyes
