In this paper, we study the problem of reproducing the light from a single image of an object covered with random specular microfacets on the surface. We show that such reflectors can be interpreted as a randomized mapping from the lighting to the image. Such specular objects have very different optical properties from both diffuse surfaces and smooth specular objects like metals, so we design a special imaging system to robustly and effectively photograph them. We present simple yet reliable… CONTINUE READING
