    Angry [most probably solved]Help! Enlarger issues.

    So i've noticed a very alarming issue since i've started shooting 4x5 film. My beseler dichro 45 enlarger consistently puts two hot spots on the prints. At first i thought it was caused by the negative carrier. But even empty i get them. Anybody with more experience on these things than me have a clue what could be causing them? It's not the lens either btw. I switched from a 135mm to a 50mm one and it's they are still there. I've attached an image to illustrate my problem.

    These same hot spots are appearing on all of your negatives from this 4x5 camera? Are you getting them in the enlarger with negatives from other cameras?

    Yeah, also without. But i think i've figured it out. And it didn't have anything to do with my enlarger. Those appear to be caused by me leaving the things on the print to help it stay submerged. Not sure why it suddenly started doing that but i think that's the issue.
