Ah...Viewing light! There's the rub. That concept (printing for the 'viewing light') works for let's say, an ad which is a temporarily situation with a limited 'shelf life', but an art print will, most likely outlive it's original display area, and then what? The whole concept of viewing prints under an internationally accepted light standard is that everyone is talking apples and apples. Finally, there is no 'correct' anything in life, but this is the accepted standard in printing. Harvey Ferdschneider partner, SKID Photography, NYC PS: Are you printing with the Epson OEM pigment inks? And are those more changeable (under different light sources) than the dyes?
