You need a white background and neutral lighting. To do this on the cheap, go to the craft store and buy some white foam board or white poster board and set up an impromptu photo booth. Lighting is also important; avoid using something like a halogen desk lamp or the phones flash. If you happen to have a desk lamp that will fit a CFL lamp than that would be ideal. Get one with a neutral color temperature - about 4000K - otherwise known as "cool white"

Seen the massive collection of stuff you're selling on eBay. It's too bad (for me) the bodies I wanted got bid up like crazy so fast. Awesome collection you've got.

Ohhh... so you're that guy... quite a collection... try to get a white illustration board as a background for dark cars, or grey illustration board for light or white bodies...

Yellow works too

You can use a lamp for extra lighting.

Don't use the flash.
