Re: Intentional Color Corrections Planned for Display in Ambient Light

I've heard a lot of professional photographers/printers say that they install 5000 K (or some, 4700 K) lights for viewing their prints. But I never bothered. I figure that everyone has different light temperatures in their homes/offices and sometimes many different temperatures considering all the different kinds of artificial lighting now available. I would think it to be a nightmare for a photographer to try to guess what conditions the print might be displayed in and make changes to the print accordingly... unless there is a client with specific needs who identifies the lights in his display area and is willing to pay for custom prints.  So I simply print for daylight temperatures.
