well hello there everyone; I have just recently joined and haven't had any time to post any pictures. I need some help on texturing environments. I have finished 3 different environments but need help on how I should go about texturing. Does anyone know any kind of tutorials on going about this.......
I have read many tutorials and tried to texture some of my things but they just don't seem to come out realistic. What I do is take photos of buildings then model it. Now comes the hard part texturing. I acutally have the photo of one of the buildings. So if anyone could help me I would really appreciate it. Thanx

Are you texturing for games or for rendering? There are some threads on building texturing in the game WIP section.
Here are a couple recent threads I recall seeing...

If you want to use photos of buildings as textures, then it is a good idea to take the photos on an overcast day, or just before/after sunrise/set, since the sun will add unwanted lighting onto your buildings, which usually ends up fighting with your CG lighting.
