Wow! I just bought an E30, but I don't think I'll be getting shots like this with it anytime soon. Nice lighting and skin tones. Excellent capture, although I can't say that the model looks very captured at all.

It's one of your usual perfect shots and the position of the model and angle of view is interesting. The lighting is a bit suboptimal in my opinion, because the head of the model is a tad too bright. I would perhaps have tried this shot with a more diffused light.

Thanks for the insightful comments. I was very intentional with the way I lit the shot, and it turned out just the way I wanted it to. I used a 22" beauty dish with a grid to throw all the light on her and keep it off the sofa as much as possible then did some post processing to add to that distinction. I wanted to draw attention to her face and her expression, as there were a couple of other elements that could be distracting.
