We focus on the problem of developing coupled statistical models that can be used to recover surface height from brightness images of faces. Our approach consists on using a simple model that assumes that the height eigenmodes are identical to the intensity eigenmodes. We recover the height function directly from the best-fit intensity parameters. As a result the computations involve only a straightforward matrix-vector multiplication. Experiments show that this method generate accurate height surfaces from out-of training intensity images.
