This paper evaluates a new method for capturing surfaces with variations in albedo, height, and local orientation using a standard digital camera with three flash units. Similar to other approaches, captured areas are assumed to be globally flat and largely diffuse. Fortunately, this encompasses a wide array of interesting surfaces, including most materials found in the built environment, e.g., masonry, fabrics, floor coverings, and textured paints. We present a case study of naïve subjects who found that surfaces captured with our method, when rendered under novel lighting and view conditions, were statistically indistinguishable from photographs. This is a significant improvement over previous methods, to which our results are also compared. © 2009 ACM.
