Light fields representing Lambertian scenes are characterized by specific epipolar plane images, which support in Fourier domain is limited by the minimum and maximum scene depth. This feature of the light field has been taken into account when designing the shearlet-based light field reconstruction algorithm. However, this feature does not hold for the case of non-Lambertian scenes. Therefore, the original algorithm performs sub-optimally for such scenes. In this work, we extend the shearlet based reconstruction algorithm to enable light fields reconstruction for scenes composed of surfaces with non-Lambertian properties. Instead of assuming Lambertianity and the corresponding Fourier-domain support, we estimate the real Fourier-domain support of the given light field of a non-Lambertian scene. Based on the estimated support, we adapt the Shearlet frame to properly span that support. The results demonstrate that the new method yields a faithful reconstruction of densely sampled light fields of non-Lambertian scenes from a small number of captured views.
