Ok, like everyone else I was inspired to do this and started tinkering around today.
I have the kit lens and my 50 1.8 as of right now, so the fifty is what I used here. I know I need to correct my WB really bad, just unsure of how to do so atm. I took this image into CS2 and applied levels and it made it 100% better, but I want the pure white straight from the camera, not to have to edit each one so much to make it look like it already should.. ha

So, any help would be greatly appreciated!
Are you shooting in RAW? If you are..... try this.
-Switch the white balance in RAW (Photoshop) to tungsten. (or if your background already seems pretty white, skip this step)
-then increase the exposure a little (until the background starts to get whiter)
-then increase the contrast a little (until the object starts to get back to a normal color again)
Adjust those settings slightly to get the right color/tone for your object. Well, this is what I have to do with my light box... maybe it will work for you too or maybe it won't because your lighting might be producing different light.
Just thought I'd share my tricks with ya.
