Personally I find it better to draw the curtains if it is daylight and then use the flash, seems to make the colours pop more.

That's just my preference, hope it helps.

i prefer natural light, but it all depends. sometimes flash, lights, or daylight make the cakle look better/ worse than it is!
have a good backdrop too, an old sheet or buy some cheap material.
make sure its in focus, find out if your camera has a macro function.

I prefer natural light too between 6-7 PM (in my area).
