Just go into you darkened bedroom and let your eyes adjust for a couple of minutes. If light is coming under the door
then turn off the light on the other side of the door. Close your curtains and unless you have a streetlight outside your
window, things should be pretty dark by now.
If you cannot see your hand in front of you face you can bring the film out into the open on top of your bed without
any problems for a couple of minutes. Before I bought a changing bag I would load my developing reels in this fashion with
no problems. I'm more impatient now and I like to develop during the daytime.
Think about it. Could you meter the light in the bedroom at this level and what exposure would you need to get an image?
Getting sweaty under the blankets is for other activitiesand preferably not alone
I would wait at least 5 minutes for my eyes to adjust.
