Every diorama that I build is different so lighting depends on whether it is a closed or open build. Some of the closed builds like the one above to me looks better unlit and the darker the better or more mysterious. I've built some with the car in the far back corner of the old barn and the car is barely visible and attracts the most attention.
The open builds usually just needs an overhead light source to help "pop" the small details like a small light over a painting etc.
About half of my builds are lit either battery powered or plugged directly in the wall.

An old barn might only have one dim light just to add some mood....
