    Do photographers shoot when the occasion arises or shoot just to practise, irregardless whether the photo will turn out nice? Just a doubt.

    In general, would say, for practise, yes, with desired or aimed results. Can also be variable.
    I shoot on an average 3-5 times a week. On some days, a few events even.

    irregardless of the turn-out, I shoot to improve.

    for me:3 times a week is avg, sometimes I try to have my basic gears with me everyday

    That's actually a very poor excuse. Between running a busy practice, spending time playing with my kids and and being their taxi driver, I have about one hour of free time a day (give or take). But you can bring a camera everywhere you go, whether school or work, and take pictures wherever you are. Just don't get caught by the boss - heck, secretly take a picture of the boss.

    I always bring my camera around, I even purposely bought a small bag that can contain a book and my camera. Since its not a DSLR or SLR, its kinda easy to carry. I only shoot if I found something interesting, which I found it very hard to find. Or maybe I do not know where to find.

    So for those that take picture in a fix schedule, what exactly do you take? Is it something that you plan, or you just hunt around?

    cheers.......

    There's no such word as irregardless. It's one of the common mis-used word in Singapore. It's either regardless or irregard.

    Physically, weekends. Mentally, every day. When walking on the road and seeing something interesting, I will compose and meter with my eyes, even without a camera. Slowly can train myself to be more sensitive to light, angle, and the MOMENT. :P
