Client I’m looking to get a portrait done – how much would that cost?
Me: Great! Well, it all depends: size, level of detail, etc. Can you show me the photo you would like me to work with? That way I can give you a more accurate quote.
The client then sends me a photograph of half of his head with the grainiest photo quality I’ve ever seen.
Me: Well, that’s a start, but I can’t really work with this photo. The quality isn’t sharp enough to get enough detail in there, do you have any others?
Client then proceeds to send me the exact same photo, except this time with an even higher contrast.
We’re still going back and forth on the same photo.
