One more thing, while I am being overly picky about your image.

I opened your image in Photoshop to lighten it and to add a hair light. In doing this I noticed you have your subject very close to your background. I try to keep my subject 6' - 7' from my background. In the case of your image, when I lightened the image, the background also became much lighter, and this would not happen if the subject were further from the background.

If you keep your subject further from the background, you can light the background separately if you want. Although in this shot I would not light the background.

I also noticed the background on the floor is bunched up, which is easily fixed in Photoshop.

Sorry to be so picky, but I happen to like this shot and would like to see what you can do with it.
