    Whenever I need to, even if sometimes it's just to run off contact sheets for film identification.

    Now I am printing more personal work and I am thrilled with this.
    What is the 'smilie' for envy?

    For me, it's about once every three weeks at the moment. But we have a young baby, so it is difficult to find the time. When I do get in there, I remember how much I miss it, but I don't spend as much time in there per session. Nowadays it's probably only about two hours. But I do find that I've become much more efficient in the darkroom. The postcard exchange has helped that quite a bit...so has the baby.

    In the last two weeks I've been printing in the darkroom 6 times. Developing film two times. This is average for this time of the year. During really hot weather January through to early March I print during cool spells.

    I suppose on average, about 1½ times a week through a whole year.

    I print 3 days of the week at work (I work for a Community College) but the gang darkroom thing is just not working out. People are too fast and loose with the chemicals and too often the fixer and developer get exhausted before they get changed. I am building a temporary setup in a bathroom so that I can print when I want and use the can normaly the rest of the time. Once that is done, I plan to print about the same amount of time as I do now, just with a lot less frustration!

    My darkroom is at my local community college as well. Two pieces of advice I can give to you are:
    1 - Bring your own chemicals. I do this and I let everyone in the darkroom know that they are mine and for my use only. This way, you and you alone will have control of changing the chemicals you use.
    2 - Don't be afraid to tell people if they are doing something wrong or sloppy (politely, of course). Once people are told they are doing something incorrectly, they usually stop.

    I'm one of the lucky ones who has a permanent darkroom at home, in my basement. I hate trying to print when I've only got an hour or so, which happens far too often for my taste. I'm energized lately though with the stuff I shot on my last vacation, so I've been getting in at least one film developing and/or contact sheet making session every couple days, and more time on the weekend. I know I'll be making some big prints this weekend for an upcoming show, and as gifts for the holidays.
