Pegelli, once again thank you for your comments. I had a very tough time getting people pictures in the light available. I like the interaction between mother & daughter too and am happy with this photo - and happy to have passed!

Here's my first attempt. Cooking goose for xmas dinner. I would normally take these kind of photos with a 50mm at a safe distance. So I decided to take with my widest lens (17mm on full frame) at MFD (manual focus), so the front element was a couple of inches away from the goose bone. The heat from the fan oven was blowing in my face, felt like I was in a sauna. Not sure if it was great for my camera/lens to be inside the oven, but it was only for a few seconds and hey it's a cheap lens :)



By the way, here's the safe 50mm for comparison (before I thought of getting closer).



Cheers
Phil

Novel idea Phil, and definitely worthy of a pass.

Now you can stop sticking your head in the oven.

Phil - I like this a lot. Not only do you get closer as per the assignment, but you also create a new and interesting look of a everyday (well, at least fairly commonplace) item.

Well done (both the photo and the bird).

Ha, Ha, a worthy pass I would say. Your 'getting closer' shot is so much more interesting than the 50 mm 'safe' shot so a clear example how the assignments create more interesting perspectives.

Looking forward to more of your assignment contributions.

Thanks for the kind comments! These assignments are fun and definitely feel my photography is improving. I haven't got any ideas for 'High Key' yet, so I will do more thinking/reading/research before I attempt that one!
