In this paper, the authors addresses the problem of illumination effects on face recognition and works for an approach to reduce their effect on recognition performance. More broadly, a simple and efficient preprocessing chain that eliminates most of the effects of changing illumination while still preserving the essential appearance details that are needed for recognition. Using Local Ternary Patterns (LTP), a generalization of the Local Binary Pattern (LBP) local texture descriptor that is more discriminant and less sensitive to noise in uniform regions.
