You have to use flash, put it in macro focus mode. Adjust the white balance for what kind of light: tungsten, shade, fluor 1, 2, etc. When you change, the viewfinder will show you the color changes. If your flash has an intensity adjustment (mine adjusts for weaker flash in macro mode) adjust lower for close up pics.

Get a tripod, you will see a major improvement in the number of pictures that are crisp. Otherwise they look great.
