I recently purchased a Sony RX100 so I would always have a good camera with me. This one has all the manual controls I need, it’s small enough so that I will take it with me, and the image quality is outstanding. It fits easily in a jacket pocket and even in a pants pocket. I decided to see how well it would sync with my speed lights. My wife was working on a quilting project, so I began to photograph some of her work. So far I’m pleased, but the focusing does require attention. The lights have to be manually adjusted, but dialing down the on-camera flash and covering it so it wouldn’t influence my exposure, produced a satisfying result. (Click photo to enlarge.)
The colors, textures, and the patterns of the fabrics do lend themselves to visually interesting subjects. I may continue this as a personal project, documenting all the many steps until the final quilt is ready for use.
