That is probably your sensor that needs a cleaning. Typically stuff that is on the lens is going to be to far out of focus to discern as small spots. You probably will also only see these spots when shooting at a high aperture.

Thanks VF. I uploaded three different shots.
Like I said, I have a Canon 30D and you can't miss the spots that showed up on my shots.
1/400, f/10, 130mm, ISO 320
1/400, f/10, 135mm, ISO 320
1/400, f/5.6, 50mm ISO 320
Anyone's advice would be very appreciated.

Yeah I just went through that. Get a rubber air blower and be very careful. NO canned air!
I got two of the vivatars and three pocket wizard II's and a couple of super clamps. It will probably take some testing but it will be fun to learn on a big scale (Derby Dolls) and explore the possibilities.
Ever since I found out about Pocket Wizards I know I wouldn't sleep til I got some so now I can sleep again.

I got one of these and it works great for sensor dust removal. I blow it out before every big shoot.

Now I have to learn how to light things. I'm mostly targeting roller derby but I will have a blast learning this Strobist stuff at the same time. This is so exciting! I talked to a pro and she said "I remember when I was enthusiastic about photography like you are, don't lose that".
It seems like every road to pro lighting ends at the door of the Pocket Wizard so I figured it's better to jump right in instead of going halfway and then wanting the real thing for years. So, I bit the bullet and took the leap.
Wifey said, "You've spent thousands on photo equiptment and haven't made a dime." I think she's behind me 100%

If you've got a DX camera and want a good deal on a 10.5mm fisheye, I'm your man.
EDIT: Damn! It sold already! Took less than three hours and I got my 'Buy It Now' price!

Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

That's awesome. This is the 2nd time you've made it into People, no?

Two in People and one in US.
I think it has more to do with Drew than my mad foto skillz.
