Capture Webcam picture in .NET?

Hi all,

I need to create a public booth where people can look at themselves in a
webcam and snap a picture which will be seen on a webpage. The backend is
easy, it's the webcam part that I have problems with...

Could you recommend the best way to capture a Webcam picture from .NET?
Do I need device specific drivers or is there a standardized way to do it?
Any recommended brand of Webcam?
