    Christiaan - adding a point light in PhotoView will achieve this effect for you.

    1. Step 1

      From the "Scene,Light and Camera" tab right click on Lights and select Add Point Light. Then choose the location for the light.

      Medium

    2. Step 2

      With this window still open select the PhotoView tab. Set your desired light settings.

      Medium

    3. Step 3

      The resulting effect will cast lighting and shadows onto other surfaces.

      Medium

    4. Step 4

      Selecting Fog from this same window will give this lighting effect.

    In order to insert the Point Light in a specific position should I manage the x,y,z positions or there are ather ways? For exaple can I add the Point Light onto a reference point ?

    Great quick tutorial! While I am familiar with light sources, I've never experimented with the Fog. Thanks for the design inspiration!
