Consider the following shot - one character in the scene (the foreground one) is purposely darkened for cinematic effect. Using spotlights I know how to lighten things, but is there like an anti-light spotlight that can darken an object? It is for this sort of effect - making a character look dark and mysterious, or have them hide in a corner. I was wondering about using a local volume like for fog, but I don't want to darken the air around the character - just the character. Here the character is separated from the other characters, so I could try putting objects just out of camera shot to cause shadows. Is there a better approach? I like spotlights for example as they have angle and ranges, so you can control what is affected, but a volume (box, sphere, etc) is fine as well.
