Dennis - part of it will be learning to spot and harness the right lighting conditions. Part of it will be what you do in post-processing. I'm still struggling with the lighting part (all I've figured out is how to distinguish harsh from soft lighting), especially when it comes to shadow vs. light in B&W -- so I won't be much help there. As for adding saturation and contrast, experiment with your post-processing tool of choice. Don't necessarily copy other peoples' styles and approach -- develop your own.
