This paper discusses the special case of reconstructing the unknown Lambertian surface from two-image photometric stereo. Both images are assumed here to be formed by a genuine second-order algebraic surface. The corresponding uniqueness issue is discussed for different pairs of image irradiance equations under various illumination settings. Illustrative examples supplement presented analysis and demonstrate its main gist.
