    Default Lights for viewing photos?

    What is the best kind of lighting and arrangement for viewing my printed photos? Incandescent, Florescent, or natural, or any other type?

    calibrated 5500k lights... illuminated from every corner to remove shadow. Yet must be soft enuff not to create harsh shadows.

    aka, u can look inside the softbox... lol..

    *as long as there is no color cast, it should be fine.

    The recommended colour temperature for critical viewing is D50 or 5000 deg. K light source. See Unfortunately, I could not find any in Singapore.

    The best one it seems is Solux. Looks like I will have to get some of these bulbs when I am in the US this December.

    Last week I was in the Art House to see an exhibition of photographs. They were using normal halogen lights and these made the prints
    looked too warm.
