Actually moving the easel would cause this. plus a bit of inadequate lens coverage. Have to disagree but it really is a basic error a lot of technicans make. the OP is probably enlarging the image and then moving the easel off the center axis.. just my 2 cents though.

BTW, moving the easel should not really cause this kind of vignetting. Sure, you could overrun the image and get the edges of the negative carrier blocking a side of the print, but that would be a straight edge; corners being clipped looks a lot more like inadequate lens coverage to me.
