How to use "Shading" in context?

Shading can make an object look more realistic or atmospheric. Artists use shading to give a character's face a shadow, make a sun look like it's setting, or bring out the blue in a sky.

Shading is also used to create contrast. When you shade an object, the light that hits it will be spread out. This will create different tones on the object. If you shade an object evenly, it will look flat and two dimensional. But if you shade the object differently in different parts, it will look more natural and three dimensional.

Some objects are easier to shade than others.
