Diffuse Reflection

Diffuse reflection is the opposite of specular reflection. It is the type of reflection where, instead of returning an image of the item being reflected, no matter how distorted, instead the light beams are scattered randomly. In nature, this results in a general shine where light falls, but no image. In raytracing and raycasting, this is extremely difficult to replicate.
