    Hi

    Ive set up a nice darkroom.. now, Im in luck and have been given a second room next to the darkroom. No more running up stairs to review prints ( my darkroom is in the basement ), wee! Anyways...Im setting up an review area and a dry area for cutting, framing etc. What kind of light should I install to review photos? I am on a budget so anything cheap would be wonderfull.

    Best regards

    Kim

    For inspecting the quality details - as much light as possible. To evaluate the photographs - the same light in which you expect to display your work. Lots of lamps - and lots of on/off switches !
