You Need To Ask Video Experts

I would suggest that you are making a huge mistake by not asking this question in the video form or at cinematography.com where people who are much more familiar with video could weigh in.

I am following this casually only - my understanding is that 100 reflectance (for a diffuse surface) means that all falling light is reflected but in all directions. You are looking from some specific one. You see a small portion of all that light coming at you only. A mirror-like surface can direct it all to you.

This is exactly the conclusion I've come to.
