Abstract

Photometric Stereo is a powerful image based 3D reconstruction technique that has recently been used to obtain very high quality reconstructions. However, in its classic form, Photometric Stereo suffers from two main limitations: Firstly, one needs to obtain images of the 3D scene under multiple different illuminations. As a result the 3D scene needs to remain static during illumination changes, which prohibits the reconstruction of deforming objects. Secondly, the images obtained must be from a single viewpoint. This leads to depth-map based 2.5 reconstructions, instead of full 3D surfaces. The aim of this Chapter is to show how these limitations can be alleviated, leading to the derivation of two practical 3D acquisition systems: The first one, based on the powerful Coloured Light Photometric Stereo method can be used to reconstruct moving objects such as cloth or human faces. The second, permits the complete 3D reconstruction of challenging objects such as porcelain vases. In addition to algorithmic details, the Chapter pays attention to practical issues such as setup calibration, detection and correction of self and cast shadows. We provide several evaluation experiments as well as reconstruction results.
