Flash vs. Natural Light: Two Pro Portrait Photographers Go Head-to-Head

Portrait photographers Manny Ortiz and Jessica Kobeissi just did a shootout that pitted flash against natural light. The two each shot portraits of the same model in a studio, except Ortiz used an off-camera flash as his main light while Kobeissi only used the sunlight bouncing around in the space.

Here are the portraits that resulted for the different outfits chosen:
