This article describes a method for estimating parameters of a reflection model from a single color image taken by a CCD camera. We used the Phong-type dichromatic reflection model for modeling light reflection on an object surface composed of nonconducting materials. We developed several algorithms for estimating model parameters and present experimental results using a real image of a plastic cylinder. Next, we generalized the approach to objects with general shapes. The feasibility of the generalization is demonstrated using both synthesized and real images.
