I think the choices of focal length and shooting distance are more matters of personal preference than strict rules to be obeyed. Judging by the image posted, you're certainly getting excellent results. The RX1, just by virtue of the fact that it has a fixed focal length and that focal length is not the traditional "portrait" variety, is more limited in its appropriate for this use--but I certainly wouldn't write it off.


Thanks Bob. I also think there would be a benefit in being 'forced' to take a different kind of portrait than I'm used to... or maybe I'm just trying to convince myself
