    For the output of an augmented reality application to
    appear realistic a number of issues need to be taken into
    consideration. The illumination correspondence between
    the real and virtual components should be taken into account
    as well as the scene level of detail and the accuracy
    of alignment between the two worlds. This paper focuses
    on matching world illumination and photometric registration
    methods. It introduces a new technique that aims to
    utilize shadow/object interest point correspondences in order
    to locate and virtually reproduce real-life illuminants.
    The technique is attractive as it makes use of natural calibration
    objects in the form of natural scene geometry and
    associated shadows. Computational complexity is kept relatively
    low by using an interest point based approach. Further
    work to be undertaken is discussed.
