A week ago - Have not shot anything worthwhile this week.
I printed last time, maybe, 18 month ago. I give some files of my doughtier to grandparents on a thumb drive to print at BJs from time to time. Their generation prefers tangible prints, but those are 5"x7"s.
I have a few prints displayed around the house. They are printed at home at 13"x19" and nicely framed. That was about 18 months ago when I updated them.
There are many other ways to share your work with others. I have a website, I post some of my photos on Facebook for my friends to see (and all my Facebook friends are real fiends of mine and not strangers). If I want an opinion of fellow photographers about some particular photos, I post them on these forums for critique. I sometimes bring slideshows to parties to display on iPad or on a TV.
A few years ago I divided one of my photos into 12 parts, printed them border-less on 12 letter size pieces, framed in thin-border frames, and made a nice - looking collage.
It was assumed that large-format printing is the way to judge technical qualities of photographic work, and evaluate cameras and lenses. It is now replaced with 100% viewing on computer monitors.
A friend of mine does sometimes shoot events (weddings, etc.) as a side job. He says that his customers are only interested in digital files, and hardly anybody wants to pay for prints. He has to specify in the contract the price (rather high) for the full-resolution digital files, and obligation of the customers to buy certain quantity of them.
In conclusion, printing is not dead yet, but with proliferation of different ways to display and share your work, printing became somewhat a hermetic art.
A couple of days ago. I print a few - some to put up on a pin board, some to give to the relatives, some better ones to frame and sometimes exhibit and sell. It certainly isn't all of them, and there's a huge repository sitting on my hard drive.......
I'm currently considering using online book printing services to make a year book for the family, and to do a special one for big holiday trips. I think that way they may get looked at more often - a book/album is just so more immediate and tactile than staring at a computer screen. I need to do some research into their archival and physical quality.......
I print a few hundred prints a year.
(see profile for equipment)
I printed my last good image a couple of months back. I take a truly excellent (to my tastes) image about once a month, sometimes only three or four a year, but I do take the time to print them when I see that I have one.
A few times a year. Once a year my 10 best for the county fair.
Family small prints to share.
Photo books...again family usually, but I did do one of animals and birds.
Mostly my shots wind up on family computers so we can enjoy the grand kids, and we also like digital picture frames.
I had a number of 11x14 and 16x20 prints made.
Absolutely nothing like a big print to show off your work.

Had the darkroom to myself last week but did not print as many as I wanted to.
Hopefully will print more this week.
yesterday, but you are right....it is not as often or even as many as i used to. digital albums have allowed me to much more selective.
betcha it is not too often.
I printed off 4 to go into a show organized by a local photographer. Just before that I printed an 11x14 portrait of a pet for a friend of ours.
You'd lose that bet.
I am missing the dynamic range, especially when a light source (Sun, Moon, reflections, lights, etc.) are in the picture. Even if they are printed as white and the surrounding area is dark, the print still does not generate the illusion of a "source of light" as digital display does. At one time, I was even thinking about installing a source of light (white LED) behind a curtain parts of my prints, but I never tried.
Here are two examples which I like on the computer monitor or iPad. I printed them, and they look rather dull in prints:
In museums, they place prints under glass with anti-reflective coating, and have a dedicated external source of light - usually a halogen lamp or two illuminating the prints.
betcha it is not too often.
You would lose that bet with me. Lots of my pix end up in print. Wall hangers, photo books, framed desk shots, etc. Every vacation or trip leads to a new photo book, and the relatives who come along on vacations can't wait for them.
On screen is OK, but who wants to drag out a PC to view vacation photos when we can produce, and very easily, some very nice photo books?
When the Fujifilm X-T2 arrived, it was more than just a modest upgrade to the already impressive X-T1. While the new X-T3 hasn't changed the overall design of the camera, this model is way more than an upgrade; rather, it's a quantum leap.
The Movie Maker is a compact, motorized slider designed for phones, action cams and small mirrorless cameras. We think it's a fun little kit and a good value proposition for the cost, provided you can work around a few of its weak points.
Nikon's Z7 is the first camera to use the all-new Z-mount, the company's first new full-frame mount since 1959. We've put together our first impressions based on quality shooting time with a pre-production camera - check out what we've found.
