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.

These days, you still cannot even count on the quality of ambient gallery lighting for prints that you might want to sell.  In that case, you are the client of your own work.

"If you are among those who believe that it has all been done already and nothing new can be achieved, you've murdered your own artistry before ever letting it live. You abort it in its fetal state. There is much that has yet to be spoken in art and composition and it grows with the passage of time. Evolving technologies, world environments and ideologies all drive change in thoughts, passion and expression. There is no way that it can all ever be done already. And therein lies the venue for the creative artist, a venue that is as diverse as the universe is unmapped and unexplored." - Quote from FlyingLentris
