We propose a method of synthesizing computer-generated holograms of
real-life three-dimensional (3-D) objects. An ordinary digital
camera illuminated by incoherent white light records several
projections of the 3-D object from different points of view. The
recorded data are numerically processed to yield a two-dimensional
complex function, which is then encoded as a computer-generated
hologram. When this hologram is illuminated by a plane wave, a 3-D
real image of the object is reconstructed.
