Moon lighting is similar to down lighting, but casts a more attractive shadow due to its softer light source. Moon lights are often mounted in a trees or behind landscape objects.
Grazing — Grazing works best with surfaces that have a lot of texture. By placing the light close to the object or wall, it illuminates the lower part of the surface and casts a shadow on the upper part bringing out its texture. Grazing a tree, for example, can reveal texture and dimensions not visible in the full light of the day.
Silhouette Lighting — Silhouette lighting occurs when you have your light behind an object or plant which can create a beautiful profile by hiding the light. With this approach you can highlight a specific plant or tree and provide uplighting or grazing effect on a wall.
