My portrait swipe file

My portrait swipe file

My portrait swipe file I’m about to admit something, and I don’t consider it to be unethical.  What I do is swipe other photographers’ photos off the internet.  I spend quite a bit of time looking at other photographers’ photos, usually on Pinterest or Instagram.  I “follow” photographers whose work I admire, and when I…
