One of the easiest and most effective ways to light a scene naturally is through the use of HRDI Illumination using a sky-dome. In Omniverse, a sky-dome is achieved by using a Dome Light (Light > Dome Light) and then attaching an HDRI image to the File Input on the light. To make this process easier, NVIDIA has delivered a continually growing list of HDRI images to use in your Omniverse Dome Lights.
