The **Phong reflection model** (also called **Phong illumination** or **Phong lighting**) is an empirical model of the local illumination of points on a surface. In 3D computer graphics, it is sometimes ambiguously referred to as Phong shading, in particular if the model is used in combination with the interpolation method of the same name and in the context of pixel shaders or other places where a lighting calculation can be referred to as “shading”.

### Famous quotes containing the words model and/or reflection:

“AIDS occupies such a large part in our awareness because of what it has been taken to represent. It seems the very *model* of all the catastrophes privileged populations feel await them.”

—Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

“In the last analysis, love is only the *reflection* of a man’s own worthiness from other men.”

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
