Photography challenges are an interesting trend online that demonstrate how every photographer has a unique approach to the art. But, more than that, it reveals how every photographer needs to actively train their creative eye in order to stand out.
Jessica Kobeissi recently released another episode in her series of videos of portrait comparisons in which she and three of her fellow photogs had three minutes to take a picture of the same model. Additionally, each round of shoots has a special sudden death stipulation that restricted the photographers’ freedom during the sessions. Let’s see what they were up against.

In this challenge, 4 photographers shoot the same model! Each person picks their own location, outfit and photographs the same model to showcase how different each of their styles are.
