I have seen that kind of phenomenon described, in the alternative, as 
"veiling glare", to differentiate it from the kind of strong light patterning 
resulting from shooting at or near an angle straight into the light source.  
It seems similar in concept to the "light pollution" lately being recognized 
by astronomers in and near urban and suburban areas, which makes it 
impossible to see many of the less bright stars and planets.
