Three points.
I don’t quite understand your choice of settings. Why put your ISO up to 640 when It looks like you had enough latitude given your shutter speed 1/1250 to take it right down to 50? What am I missing?
I have exactly the same gear as you, camera and lens.
The other is the very tight landscape crop cutting through her neck.
Small point, the corner of the room is a bit of a distraction.
If I were you shoot with her again and give her some room, she has a fantastic look.

What you have produced looks great, love the lighting and the expression from the model is a killer! Love it, just a pity about the very tight crop.

Eric, thank you for your constructive feedback, really appreciated. However I love these tight headshots.
We are all different ;)
