Zen And The Art Of Coiling Cables

Can you imagine that there’s a blog post about coiling cables? Yes, but more importantly, it’s a blog post that I’m going out of my way to direct you to. It must be tremendous. Fear not, because it is. Not only because it gives me an opportunity to get on my high horse about never ever coiling cables around your elbow (yes, I know it’s the way our dads taught us way back when, but it’s so wrong!) and also to indulge an aspect of photography that I like—the meditative aspect. Chris Chrisman’s studio manager Robert Luessen uses cable coiling as a chance to reflect on the completed shoot, as well as a way to gauge the progress of new assistants.
