As each paper he/she does have a different color, are not all white
pure, should I put to "or" my densitometro on the target of each
paper to show him which the density of the pure target is?.
Otherwise, the densitometro includes a calibration scale, black
pure, half pure and gray target. It should gauge the densitometro to
these parameters with independence of the color of each paper.
General practice (and my preference) is to calibrate the densitometer
using the calibration scale. Then, to determine the Density Range of
a print, you will measure the density of the paper (in an unexposed
area, after processing) and subtract that density from the measured
image density to determine the image density above "paper white"
(which, as you say, will not be pure white).
