Just curious how often you use lens hoods. I personally never seem to use them. am I missing something, do they really help.

Thanks in advance

I use mine a lot.  My Sigma prime's hood is on 100% of the time because it's small enough to fit nicely in the bag.  The other hoods go on any time that I am shooting on a sunny day or I think there's any risk to the lenses.  They reduce flare and protect the front element, if you are mostly shooting indoors and not towards bright lights you may notice the difference in the actual photographs.
