The answer is "maybe" and depends on the amount of time and patience you want to devote.

The more important question is what is the problem? Are your prints coming out too light? Or too dark? And what program are you using to adjust the pictures before printing?

I don't know is the first time I'm sending to print as fine art, and the indication photo lab gives is 120 cd/mq photo should be correct

Have you learned about histograms?

why histogram, I cannot know if they will turn out darker or lighter there are too many thing in between

And finally, does the photo lab you use have an "auto correct" function that is added to the photos before printing? Normally that works pretty well.

Yes but I don't want the to mess everything up with auto correct after spending a loto of time editing my photo as I want
