Re: setting temperature

In my case I would just turn it off completely. I think this is an acceptable response, because as you mentioned, you don't have a choice of placement. Whenever there's too much other stuff visible in my field of view, I find it distracting. During the times I worked from home, I relied on blackout curtains. Otherwise most places that employ retouchers make it easy to maintain a dim working environment.

Re: setting temperature

Thanks Klev. I'm in that direction - lighting is quite dim but still I do use a light in the room
It makes me uncomfortable (not in an uneasy way) with lighting any dimmer. When I go to leave my I feel like I've been working in a coal mine

Any other thoughts?
Thanks, Shift Studio.

I understand the feeling. Total darkness isn't that pleasant. Between your hypothetical choices, I would probably go for the ceiling light behind the user a meter or more away. Too much direct light on the display can make it look washed out due to light reflected by anti glare coatings. The older displays used by Apple were even worse in that regard, due to the presence of sharp reflections.

I think in your case, I would at least be careful to avoid leaving any bright surfaces (including walls) within my range of peripheral vision. This can be accomplished using any manner of workspace barriers if it's a problem for you. My productivity drops off exponentially in the presence distractions, so I'm quite careful to avoid them.

Re: setting temperature

You can't go too dark in an editing environment! ANY ambient light that strikes the display affects your perception of black. You can absolutely run too bright and you want to avoid as much light spilling on the display as you can muster.
