Most, if not all, digital SLRs have a setting to change the ISO of the camera. In low light conditions, you'll need to bump up the ISO. If you're shooting in full auto mode, the camera will do it for you, and it'll probably want to use the built-in flash too. If you use auto and don't want flash, change the automatic setting to Landscape mode. The camera will figure everything out for you and it won't use flash. Check your camera's owner's manual for how to change the settings--each camera is different. The alternative is to bring in more light. Studio strobes, desk lamps, Home Depot work lights--any of these will do the job--just be careful with the desk lamps and work lamps as they can get very hot and potentially start a fire.
