there is a good example on how to capture the whole screen in MSDN under the "Capturing an Image" title - search for it.
It can easily be modified to capture a specific window, not the whole screen

In the same topic two titles bellow there is one called "Storing an image". It describes storing a bitmap.

BTW the whole topic is a good reading to start with.
