A novel technique for synthesizing a hologram of three-dimensional objects from multiple orthographic projection view images is proposed. The three-dimensional objects are captured under incoherent white illumination and their orthographic projection view images are obtained. The orthographic projection view images are multiplied by the corresponding phase terms and integrated to form a Fourier or Fresnel hologram. Using simple manipulation of the orthographic projection view images, it is also possible to shift the three-dimensional objects by an arbitrary amount along the three axes in the reconstruction space or invert their depths with respect to the given depth plane. The principle is verified experimentally.
