Crap. ok I'll start over, same white point? native luminance? I didn't start with 100 because it has never worked.

Ok, so I re calibrated to 70 lum and d50 . prints are warmer than screen and brightness matched up pretty good. Should I re calibrate to d55 and a different Lum ? or get 5200k bulbs and brighter ?

Prints still warmer and I turned down brightness from the display panel to match up the brightness. So I guess this means the new 5000k bulbs are not what I need.

I switched to 5000k and 900 lumens today. I have 4 bulbs in the over head light fixture and two lamps with two bulbs each in them.

I was hoping you could tell me LOL! Is it 5200k?  I didn't see any of those at my local Home Depot 

Or maybe I should edit warmer or cooler ?Heck I don't even know anymore.

Is there any chance you could just take the easy path and only edit during the day?

 I wish , that's  when I shoot sessions. Then do the normal everyday things you need too during daylight. Night is when I have all the time in world.

Any other rooms in your house with whiter light, that could be your editing space?

No they are all painted the same color. There has to be a way. I know of other photographers who edit in the dark mind you or in dim lighting who also calibrate and their prints match. I feel like I'm the only one in the world who's prints do not match ! I know of a photographer who uses her internal calibration on her iMac and her prints match up! Wha??

No you don't.  Have you ever been to their house/office/studio to see it for yourself?

No I have not been there but they have shown me their prints and say they have not had an issue. I print with bay photo and so my  PS set to their specifications.

Bay Photo print too warm.  You MUST get test prints from a new lab, pronto.

I'm with Shootproof so they have certain labs. I'll find another that is not too costly for my clients.

So why do the prints look cool in person as I'm holding them in natural light? They do not look warm. To me if I don't compare them they look fine so beautiful. But I understand why you compare.

 So the other labs they offer through shootproof.

Oh crap.  They're all bad, except for maybe Black River.  I'm not sure about it.  Definitely never use Bay, Millers or Mpix.

Bayphoto and Millers are the worst to get matching. Seriously, we have the mammoth threads of frustration to prove it. I like CPQ.com. They are like Artsy Coulture, but with better turn-around time. One thing with CPQ, is you do not want to push your colors. A little goes a long way, unless you are into Nuclear Colors. Color Inc. I've also had good results from.

I have sent out prints to WHCC and got them back. I have not compared yet since I am not in the same lighting I edit in at the moment. But already 3 out 4 photos look better on WHCC than Bay Photo just by looking from the naked eye and in daylight lighting. SO I will compare the prints to the screen alter tonight. We shall see !

I dumped WHCC years ago. Their individual prints are ok, but things like albums and such, I’m not impressed. Maybe your results will be different.
