Watering Can


I design adverts for a living, so when I take a photo of Jack that I think would lend itself well to an advertisement, I feel strangely compelled to add a logo or the likes. Obviously this is not a real advert for Aigle. Jack and I are their new biggest fans though. I mean, look at those gorgeous wee welly boots... I could just write a poem about them. They are my favourite Jack's favourite footwear ever!  The wellies were not really what I had intended to capture this morning. I decided I wanted to photograph him gardening with his new watering can. My Nan was the person who ignited his interest by filling her little green watering can and showing him how to give the plants a drink. He was so into it I knew I had to buy him a can of his very own. I took my sky blue backdrop outside today as watering inside would have created a right mess. Isn't he a helpful boy?

    1. I believe they are. Jack seems to love stomping about in them. Having said that, I find my wellies a bit uncomfortable after a while, so I wouldn't keep them on him for hours at a time.

  35. Thank you so much for joining Photo Feedback again. I love seeing photos of Jack. I love that first shot of Jack and his boots. I think the focus, depth of field, and composition is perfect! It could be an add for them. My only suggestion would be to maybe lighten up the blue background to make it look a tad more like the sky. No one would ever know that it is a backdrop. Although I do kind of like the bold color of it. I think it makes it look more like an advertisement.
