    Lately... Not much.

    The last few weeks, the only time I even took my camera out of the bag was for fight club.


    Been meaning to shoot more though.

    I shoot whenever I can. I am still learning (actually I've been "still learning" for a few years now :greenpbl: ) so I am always reading different books and magazines. All day at work I am just antsy on getting off so I can pick up my camera.

    Before and during college... probably at least 2-4 hours a day.

    Post family and career... maybe 2-4 hours every few days.. No where near enough.

    It depends. There are days when I've exposed a number of sheets or rolls of film, and on those days I'll spend a hour or so developing and a couple hours printing conact sheets and preliminary prints of selected negatives. Other times I'll spend a few hours printing in the darkroom working on getting a couple of finished prints.

    When I am photographing, I tend to work only for a few hours, unless I'm hiking to a remote destination, but even then I rarely spend more than a few hours actually making exposures. As others have stated, I would love to have more time to photograph, but even had I won the lottery, I think that a 1-2 hours a day would be my maximum time actually photographing or a 2-3 hour darkroom session...
