When I asked him earlier on (page 1) if the problem was grayish whites or not dark enough blacks he said the blacks weren't dark enough. So I don't think the problem is light leaks from the enlarger or the safe lights. This specific problem could be a from a number of problems. He said the negatives look contrasty but maybe they are over exposed. Possibly the filters are faded. Maybe it is just his technique. Sometimes instead of going to a higher contrast grade I, so not to lose detail in the lighter areas I will instead burn in the darker areas to black.
