Loading a Plastic Film Reel
Religions have been founded based on the debate over using plastic or steel reels. Personally I like the AP plastic reel. I find them easy to use and at this stage I have about 10 of them so I always have some dry and ready to go.
Always make sure they are fully dry before you use them as the film will stick to the plastic if they are wet.
I think that there is only so much that you will learn by watching a video of this but it gives you and idea of what to expect when you get into the darkroom.
This gets easier every-time you do it. My advice is to sacrifice a roll to practice in the light first.
