Just got my DSLR yesterday, i have never used one before in my life, i have zero photography training. So try not to laugh to hard if the pics suck :) And i am open to any tips you guys may have for taking better photos.

This is a survival laser 660nm, LPC-826 diode, 324mw with a G2 lens.

Not bad Rifter, 660nm beam shots can be difficult. :)

they are tough, I recommend glycerin fog, and taking pics at angles that are not perpendicular to the beam. I find a slight exposure can help. careful not to catch the glare from the aperture, always state conditions picture was taken in.

In my experience, 660nm is about as hard as 405nm

here's my best attempt at 660 and 405, respectively. these were with a real crappy 8MP camera, but I managed
(I want a DLSR so bad, getting one soon)

I was thinking of using fog/smoke but decided against it.

I really need a tripod.

Both those side beam shots were low iso long exposure(one was 15 seconds iso 100)

I use:

ISO 100
Shutter Speed: 30 seconds
Aperture: f/11- f/22

You did an awesome job on your white balance! The red truly looks like a 660nm laser should. +4 rep if I can.

keep it up and you'll be shooting like a pro in no time. the 660 looks a little on the orange side to me....
