I dont have photos, but is not hard to solder SMT components. All you need is a solder flux (seringe) and a iron with very small tips. After component position apply solder flux in the leads of the component and then put a small piece of solder in the iron tip. Then, in a quicky movent pass the iron tip by the leads of the component (like drawing a line with a pen). Thats all.
One thing that is VITAL is a MAGNIFYING glass and a good source of LIGHT i put toghether a JIG wih clamps to hold the board and move it around ,and a loupe with a very bright halogen lamp .. Now i tackle very fine pitch parts
I do the same of the other post, but I use red paraffin (deontological use) to do a very small ball of it. I apply this ball to the base face of component to fix it to the board. First I align the component and when is done, I press and the paraffin fix the component to the board, doing the soldier task easy.
these are the principles i used, however i used a diffrent iron , and as a source of air i used a pump for tires. the soldering iron i used is

the berrel is solid with ceramic berrel, so u shove alot of steel wool into it and whack on a tip, and u have a working airke soldering iron, the system has to be semi air-tight if u are planning to ma it.
also another catch, once the iron is hot u have to give it 5-10 min to cool down before turning off the air, otherwise you may fry the core.
