    This was great! One question. When you set up your reflective panel to give it some more real world characteristics, what generally is assigned in the material panel to that in particular?

    Well, if I understand your question correctly, it’s just a glow value. The glow value allows a surface to emit more energy than it receives. This affects diffuse illumination and also is important for reflecting in other surfaces. This type of lighting is very common in product photography.
