We consider specific features in the formation of light field scattered by space-limited-objects depending on optical characteristics of the medium within the objects. To determine the asymmetry of the brightness pattern, we propose to use an integral parameter introduced in the paper. It is shown that the behavior of the brightness asymmetry factors as functions of the medium parameters can be used to estimate applicability of the Bouguer law, as well as the onset of deep-in regime, and the optical depth of the medium starting from which it can be considered infinite.
