Pixma Pro 100 prints are too dark

I have adjusted monitor settings to canon's recommendations to make up for the very white white of a computer monitor, and turned down the brightness.

I do not own a monitor calibration device.

What does not make sense to me is that with the brightness turned down and allowing photoshop elements to do a smart fix, it chooses color and brightness, wouldn't one expect that output to be good ?

Photoshop is not taking monitor settings into account when it does an automated smart fix does it ?

Even after a automated color and brightness adjustment I still always increase brightness of the print to 30 in photoshops settings, so image looks brighter than I would want.

Image still on dark side , varying from slight but acceptable to needing to reprint.

Any ideas on this , thanks for your help.
