EPE Magazine has a good gallery and text on the basics of soldering:

“These photos illustrate the basic steps in making a perfect solder joint on a p.c.b. If you’re a beginner, our advice is that it’s best to practice your soldering technique using some clean, new parts with perhaps some new stripboard (protoboard). Be sure to avoid using old, dirty parts; these can be difficult if not impossible to solder.”Link.
