Bash script to capture pictures using webcam

Hi friends,
I have a laptop with integrated web cam. I am using "cheese" to capture photos and taking video.

Now I want to write a script with following features:
>>> It should start at the time of login
>>> Automatically it will capture one photo (to identify who is there in front of system), saves that photo in a specified folder and it will be closed automatically....

If there is a tool like this then I will be happy. Otherwise let me know how to write a script....

Thanks in advance...

Have a look into fswebcam (I think it's called).

It's a command line app to use webcams, supports delays and taking multiple shots.
yum install fswebcam
man fswebcam
