Existing Lamps / Lights Disrupting Low Light Scenes

Hi all,

In one on our recently placed locations, an outside lamp that was already on that site and a few meters in front on the camera, is giving so much light during low light hours that a big part of the image is gone.

I have searched the IPVM site and forum but I can not find anything on this issue (but i'm sure its there :).

Being a newbie in this field, any tips on where to find some basics on lamp / external light basics? How far away do they need to be, can they be in front or behind the camera? What is preferred in general etc?

Thanks for helping out.
