Theory of weak scattering of random optical fields from deterministic collections of particles with soft ellipsoidal scattering potentials of arbitrary shapes and orientations is developed. Far-field intensity distribution produced on scattering is shown to be influenced by source correlation properties as well as by a number, shapes and orientations of scatterers. The theory extends previous results on scattering from collections of spheres with soft Gaussian potentials and is applicable to analysis of a wide range of media including blood cells.
