In my opinion no. Commenting just on the lighting in general.. It looks like there has been no special lighting but more like a snapshot with poor indoor lighting. The hair is swallowed up by the background so it would need to be set apart with a hair light. It looks like you are using one light, if any, and its lighting the long side of the face. I would light the short side but would also have more than one light to begin with.

And finally the picture itself is not even in focus or possibly motion blur. Looks more like motion blur.

I may be way off on my observations but this is just the way I see it.

How many lights and what type?

thanks for the reply widowmaker.

yes it was shot indoor using the following continous lights

1 - 250 watts halide metal floodlight with 36"x40" diffussion panel for main light

1 - 500 watts halogen tungsten floodlight with 22"x 32" softbox with blue cellophane coveras filter for fill light

background light is the naturallight coming from the patio covered with yellow panaflex

camera - olympus E-10 speed 1/40secusing tripod withremote release cable

yes it must be motion blur.

again thank you for the comment i appreciate it.
