Setting up digital darkroom
I am a newbie at digital printing. Experiencing a steep learning curve!! My work is fine art photography, right now principally color.
I have an Epson 3880, a fairly new IMac monitor, and have calibrated it with i1 Display Pro by Xrite. I have a fixture in a high ceiling with incandescent bulbs. I can turn that off. I will cover the window which is around the corner with a shade. Now I would like to set up a system for lighting the prints where the color matches the monitor display color. Buying a viewer is not an option due to the expense. The used ones I found are too old with possible ballast problems and lack of ability to use available bulbs. I plan to use a goose neck lamp and add a shade to the monitor. I have a lamp with incandescent light behind my monitor.
Solux is out of stock on D50 bulbs at 5000K. They do have a bulb at 4700K which they claim is not appreciably different. From what I read, there is a difference that matters. In terms of suppliers and equipment, what are my alternatives?
Thanks for your help!
