SMD soldering?

I know some of you do SMD soldering. I did already solder 1.27mm distance packages, but now I have to solder some 1.0 or .8mm pins - and I find it quite difficult to position the SMD part correctly. I only have normal pincers as help. I solder one pin and by resoldering that pin I can actually correct the position before soldering the other pins - but that seems difficult with those smaller parts.

What do you use to position those SMDs? Do you have vacuum pincers / airpicks (or whatever they are called)? Or do you use other tools? Like glue to keep the part in position when positioned? 

Any help appreciated
