So, if you had just finished imaging, and your light source was that bright, I'd be taking 1/160th to 1/200th exposures. Experiment and find which works best.

Thanks Humayun,
My light source is very bright. it is a proper light box I used to use years ago to check out my negatives whenever the Camera shop guy didn't process my film because he didn't think there was anything on it.

I just tried 1/200th and that takes me nearly two thirds of the way across the histogram. I will give this a try tonight.
