Flat fields to correct for uneven illumination -- has anyone tried this?

There is a well known process -- flat fielding -- that is used to correct for uneven illumination in images in scientific and astronomical images. See here:

I'm wondering if anyone has tried this method to eliminate or reduce illumination gradients that many lighting configurations? I'm sure it is a very compute intensive process but is something that could be useful when it's important to get evenly lit images and lighting is not optimal.

You could try CLAHE (Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization). With OpenCV it is 6 lines of python: https://opencv-python-tutroals.readthed ... ation.html
