Its a great lighting but would be lovely if she smile a bit she look so uncomfortable on the picture. Also if you use more than one light it would be more creative. Dont get me wrong the image is really nice but using at least 2 lights you could have created a bit of rim light around her head or you could have used it to lit the background a bit as the background is way too dark.

Good image overall

a smile for michonn

Yes, but I think "nice/pleasantly uncomfortable". She did not felt uncomfortable, but i asked her to think about something serious.
Regarding the lighting: I use one light because of the "Vermeer lichting". This test photo's were preparation for the shoot with "the girl with the pearl".
Plus one reflector under her chin and one opposite the light.
(in this case the light was above her, butterfly lighting)
