Portraiture with the GR?

Sure,. why not?

This is the on-camera flash -- auto mode. Minimal post-processing. It doesn't get mentioned much, but the low distortion and excellent bokeh make for some decent headshots. This is a candid shot too.

Cute shot that works.

I have not tried the GR for close in portrait work but it is a great tool for environmental portraits.

The camera certainly is very versatile and many write it off as just another compact without appreciating the APS sensor, stunning lens and famous Ricoh ergonomics and firmware - their loss our gain.
