Does cinematography count as photography? It's certainly concerned with matters of exposure and composition and light and color, so there is overlap. But it also has other issues to deal with, that of motion and time. Be that as it may, and I'm in danger of rambling if I don't stop myself now, here's an interesting article on the cinematography of the upcoming science fiction film Sunshine. It gets pretty technical, it is an article for cinematographers after all, but I think it's a worthwhile read for the discussion on the use of lighting and color to create the psychological impact of the sun.
