And There You Have It

Once again proving that thinking out loud in public is rarely a good idea.

But I do stand by my suggestion to edit in a dark room with only a nightlight for illumination.

Oh, and turn off the auto brightness adjustment. You can find it by going to System Preferences>Displays>Automatically adjust brightness.

So there's zero reason anyone would futz with a light meter. One needs a Colorimeter, or a Spectrophotometer and software to actually measure what's necessary to build a display profile that defines device behavior for color managed previews. Simple.
