A client asked me to color some black and white pictures of his mother as a child.
Client: It’s for her funeral next week.
Me: Oh, I’m sorry to hear about her passing. What type of hair color and skin tone did your mother have as a child?
Client: I’ll snip a piece of her hair off. You can scan it and take the color from there.
