This is shot using Nikon D3000, beginner DSLR camera at 55mm (zoom all the way out). The perspective is pleasing to look at and "almost" ideal for portrait. It also create shallow depth of field effect (check out the background).
However, there is a problem with light. there is a strong direct light from the side that cast harsh shadow in the left part of the face. To fix it, you need to position the subject to a better location or use reflector to fill in the shadow.
