    After scanning the negative to arrive at a positive image, would black dust/hairs indicate these were present before the developing stage and white marks indicate dust/hairs present during developing stage.

    A lightweight rubberised fabric apron and blast everything with canned air all the time.
    And the spot healing brush. Birds can look like dust.

    Been there, done it, much prefers healing brush ;), having said that I sometimes have to retouch with my one haired brush after inkjet printouts
