Add shadow to a frame on a background

Let’s say I want to add this photography + frame on this background. It will look “very copy/pasted”.

  • How to add (with Photoshop) the shadow that would normally be produced by the frame on the 4 sides of the frame? The shadow should blend naturally with the background layer.

  • Should I also add some brightness on one edge of the frame (like would do a light coming on one side) or not?

More generally, how to make it more natural?
