From the wiki https://wiki.libsdl.org/SDL_SetWindowBrightness, this function set the brightness to the whole display/screen (rather than just your window, despite what its name suggested). The proper lighting system would be needed to litting up your model.

I'm aware that's what the brightness function does. I also have a lighting system in place (I use phong shading) which lights up the model. I only have one light currently which is positioned in front of the model. That works regardless of the brightness setting.
