This paper proposes a new method for reconstruction a shape of skin surface replica from shaded image sequence taken with different light source directions. Since the shaded images include shadows caused by surface height fluctuation, and specular and inter reflections, the conventional photometric stereo method is not suitable for reconstructing its surface accurately. In the proposed method, we choose measured intensity which does not include specular and inter reflections and self-shadows so that we can calculate accurate normal vector from the selected measured intensity using SVD (Singular Value Decomposition) method. The experimental results from real images demonstrate that the proposed method is effective for shape reconstruction from shaded images, which include specular and inter reflections and self-shadows.
