As this camera has a macro setting on it that allows you to get pictures from within 1 inch of your target, You should be able to get pretty good close up pics of your models with this camera. Best way to find out how its gonna respond is..take some test shots and see how they come out.

I would also recommend visiting the site DPReview . Its a one stop shop for all information on all cameras.
