As a photographer or videographer, you probably have a few (dozen) cables laying around. Believe it or not, there is a proper technique to wrapping them, and it not only makes them easier to store and quickly unwrap, it helps them last longer as well, saving you money.
Coming to you from The Film Look, this great video will show you how to wrap your cables for both ease of use and longevity. It might seem a bit obsessive to worry about how you wrap cable, but I can tell you that after two decades of playing guitar, my cables started lasting a lot longer when I stopped following the "bunch it up and shove it in the drawer" method. On top of that, wrapping them properly makes it extraordinarily easy to sort them and unravel them, which makes you look all the more professional on set. I also prefer the over-under method because the cables lay flat then, which makes it very easy to store them in drawers or on a shelf out of sight, as I don't like a bunch of cables strewn all about. Take a few minutes to learn the technique; you'll be glad you did.
