I'm not too fancy with my photos.
Like I said I use a camera phone. I have a samsung galaxy SII, which has an 8 megapixel camera. Though it has a tendency to get a little grainy.
Attached is a shot of my painting desk (taken with my wife's old samsung camera). I usually have a sheet of white paper on the base of the upper work lamp, I set my figures up there and use my camera-phone to take a pic.
The camera-phone actually has an auto-white balance feature which I typically leave on, but sometimes it needs help. The second attached image (taken with my smart-phone) is a good example of a photo with poor white-balancing. If I were going to use this photo I'd use an adjustment layer with either curves or levels to correct the white balancing and correct the value.
My goal is always to get the color as close to real life as possible.
I know that's not step by step. If you want step by step we can start a thread on it or move this to PM because it'll get pretty long(er) winded pretty fast.
