I have been making prints since spring and dust is my eternal enemy. I dont think I have even one print which doesnt have any dust on it.
Im using a Russian made UPA-602 enlarger, which is a condenser enlarger. When I got it, I also got a piece of non-transparent glass. Im guessing (hoping) that this glass can be used to convert the enlarger into a diffuser enlarger. I had no idea where to put it, so I put it into the filter drawer. It had no effect.
Earlier today, as I was packing up, I noticed that i can also put this glass into the negative holder. In this case, it would be right on top of the negative. Now, would this diffuse the light enough, so every tiniest dust spec would not show up on the print?
I dont know when I will be printing again, but I would like to get this sorted before I do.
