This wasn't "luck" - you've been working at it and you DID IT!! Was this one taken with a flash too?

Yes - just a bit; However 101Linda is correct, the flash is key here and I'm not timid about using it: I've learned this lesson a while back from my studio shoots that lighting is essential to photography!



I could have turned the flash off (and I did in some shots with IS), but the contrast/saturation wouldn't be like this:
