I have often wondered if I am in the norm with my printing time. I always work at night - after the kids are down for bed and usually start around 7-8 pm. I usually come in around 11 or so and am always amazed at how FEW prints I actually made. I do make contact prints of all my negs, though, and have a pile of test strips to show - in addition to the 5 or so 8x10 prints I've made. I do make several copies of each, but have never done more than 5 negs in one night. I have a print washer and only use FB paper (RC for the contact sheets).
