I edit my photos in a room that is painted a neutral grey. I have a blackout blind over the window and a single light-source which is a D65 bulb set in an uplighter that bounces the light off the wall and ceiling so that there is no direct light.
I have a dual monitor setup which I calibrate using a Colormunki Display.
Having read a lot of conflicting information regarding whitepoints, I think I have assertained the following:
Most monitors have a default whitepoint of D65. This means that the majority of people viewing work published online will be doing so with a whitepoint of D65. This means that if I am working on images that will be published online, I should have my monitors profiled with a whitepoint of D65.
D50 on the otherhand replicates how an image would look as a print under 'normal viewing conditions', whatever that means. Therefore if I am working on an image that will be printed, I should have my monitors profiled with a whitepoint of D50.
Is this the correct approach? If so, what does this mean for my lighting. If the lighting in my room is D65, does this mean that when I switch profiles from one with a whitepoint of D65 to one with a whitepoint of D50, I should also switch bulbs?].
