We propose an outdoor photometric stereo method, which considers environmental lighting for improving the performance of surface normal estimation. In the previous methods, the sky illumination effect has been either assumed to be constant throughout the scene, or to be removed by pre-processing. This paper exploits a sky model which can derive the entire… CONTINUE READING
