Hi -- newbie question here again.
Last night we received our first assignment. Shallow DOF. It's not due quite yet, but I know that if I wait until the last minute, something is bound to go awry. The next lab this coming Thursday, will be contact sheets. That means I have the weekend free to shoot.
Lectures are on Mondays; Lab is always on a Thursday night.
My questions are, after a roll of film has been exposed:
(1) What precautions do you take until the roll of film can be processed.
(2) Maximum length of time that can pass before film degradation sets in.
We will have a total of 10 assignments of the course of the semester and are expected to shoot 1 36 exp. roll per assignment.
The reason I'm asking is that conceiveably, an assignment can be completed in a day, or over the course of a weekend. So if I get ahead of schedule, is that a bad thing
