Emphasising materials with light

Influence of the incident angle

Diffuse light

With diffuse light, material surfaces have no modelling caused by shadows. Brilliance cannot be achieved with diffuse lighting either. As a result, glossy surfaces do not achieve a high-quality impression. Diffuse light is generated for example if only indirect lighting is used or by using ceiling panel lights.
