Flaring, fogging and scattering - advanced rendering functionality

Anyone out there care to explain how the advanced rendering functionality such as lens flare, light scatter and fog effects can be
effectively used ? I've seen the effects but there seems to be little help on how to use these functions.
Thanks in advanced.
