I use a daylight balanced (6,500k) flurescent tube 36W/54 in my small darkroom. The tube is ceiling mounted at 7ft immediately above my work area.
Questions are 1) is this light level OK for monochrome RC and FB papers or should I use the same level of lighting I use in my home, or should I attempt to approximate daylight? 2) for colour printing is this quality and level of lighting suitable for judging colour balance and density of prints?
Or alternatively is there a standard colour chart that I could use for comparison purposes that would work in different lighting circumstances.
Any advice gratefully received
