Got Sensor Dust? Here's How to Check.

Seeing spots before your eyes? Maybe its dust on your sensor! This informative article from Digital Photography School shows you just how to establish if you do in fact, have dust on your sensor. It is written  by Jeff Guyer, a commercial/portrait photographer based in Atlanta, GA. Still an avid street photographer and film shooter, Jeff also launched a kids photography class ("Digital Photo Challenges") three years ago.

We all know that dust on a DSLR sensor can range anywhere from the mildly annoying to downright problematic. You can try avoiding it, but the simple, unfortunate truth about sensor dust is that regardless of how careful you are, onto every sensor some dust will fall at some time. The closest you might come to avoiding it would be if you were to put a prime lens on your camera when it’s brand new and never change it or take it off. Ever. We all know that’s not about to happen, so dealing with dust becomes a critical part of regular camera maintenance. Part of eradicating any enemy, however, first requires some knowledge of where he’s hiding and how he got there.
