    Exposure, Light Leak or Darkroom Issues?

    Hello,

    I'm new here and new to large format photography. I have a Zone VI camera (bail back). I'm processing myself using the Stearman Press SP-445 and Ilford chemicals (shot on 4x5 ilford fp4+). For some reason the bottom 1/5 of my negatives seems to expose correctly or darker where as the rest of the negative is overexposed and more blurry.

    Any idea of what's going on here? Any help appreciated - thanks!

    Marc
