Lighting Question

I have been looking at the lighting material at

When you have a object not facing the light (so the back side) it is black. Is there a way to set the value so it’s not black but dark gray? I havn’t been able to figure it out

Thanks in advance

Ambient lighting?

You have to add an ambient light to your scene.

Is it only ambient lighting because I am using directional

You can use both. The ambient lighting will give the effect your looking for.

Thanks just tried it and it works. Also thanks for the fast reply. Usually other forums take couple of hours.
