I don't use a tripod (sometimes it shows) but you really need to use a flashgun, this shot is the best I could manage handheld without a flash and is a focus stack:

Compare that to handheld again but using a flash:

Now I prefer the softer light on the first one, but had to shoot around ISO800, 1/80 and f.4 without the flash. When I used the flash I could shoot ISO200, 1/120 and f.8 and had a much higher keep ratio.
