Hey all, I''m having a lighting problem... in a nutshell, when the camera is angled toward the ground, the scene lighting looks good. When the camera is angled upward, the scene lighting gets darker. Any screenshots or particular code I should post to clarify? Ideas? Thanks! MatrixCubed

make sure, you position your light / camera in the correct order.
It sounds like your light is moving together with your camera.

greets,

Maybe you set the Light position after the camera? If you call glLightfv(GL_LIGHTx, GL_POSITION, ...) the position the passed is multiplied with the current Modelview Matrix. So if you first set the camera the light is multiplied with the camera-matrix.

I had a very similar problem occuring recently. Check your lighting normals, mine had been inverted, causing what you describe.
