The reflection of light from a surface can either be specular or diffuse. Flat, smooth surfaces like mirrors and many metal surfaces exhibit specular reflection (angle of reflection of the specular beam equals the angle of incidence). Rougher surfaces such as paper are diffuse reflectors (the reflected light is distributed over a wide range of angles). Of course for many materials their reflectivity is a combination of specular and diffuse reflection
