Want to learn how to take beautiful pictures with your digital camera?? How about using the camera you’ve got to it’s fullest potential!? Well you are in luck! The Ottawa Valley Moms have teamed up with Clicks Gone Wild to give you a $50 gift certificate to any one of their public courses! Clicks Gone Wild offers beginner to advanced-level photography courses in a fun, understandable and inspiring way!

The ladies behind Clicks Gone Wild, Gemma Robillard and Rhonda McMaster, are professional photographers and each called Mommy by three young children.  They teach beginner to advanced photography courses that they have personally developed. In the last two years, these women have taught hundreds of people how to use their digital cameras (point and shoot or dSLRs) in the Ottawa Valley and beyond through public courses, their Clicks In Your Home program (personal home gatherings) and private tutoring.  The majority of their students are mothers who want to learn how to confidently capture their own children’s everyday moments and important milestones through beautiful photography.

Clicks Gone Wild will also be at the Ladies Shopping Night in Arnprior at the St. John Chrysostom Parish Hall on Friday November 2, 2012 from 4pm-10pm! Gemma & Rhonda will both be there to meet the ladies and talk more about what they do!!  Also, there is another opportunity to win a seat in one of our classes that evening!!  :)

    Awesome giveaway....something I would love to win. I consider myself a good photographer, but I do not know how to use my camera to its full capacity. I would love someone to help me with that.

    I would love to learn how to use all the features of my SLR, not just the auto setting!!

    I have been wanting to take the Magic of Manual course for a long time know to learn about white balance and metering. I haven't been able to afford it so this gift certificate would help out a lot! I hope I win! :) (I am already a FB fan but I will post a note to say that I entered the contest..) Thanks!

    I got a great camera for Christmas and love taking pictures, especially monthly ones of my 3.5month old but seem to be stuck on all the auto settings- with experimentation I can sometimes figure out aperture settings but it usually leads to many missed smiles in the pictures. I'd love to be able to take "step it up shutterbug" or the "magic of manual mode" so that I am able to capture great shots of my first little baby boy! I already "like" on Facebook, and excited to maybe win this certificate!

    I want to be able to take beautiful pictures of my family.

    I really want to take their "Magic of Manual" course.... I am just a hobbyist photographer, and have so much I want to learn! :)

    I have taken lots of pictures over the years - many of them very good so my photog friends and professional tell me. I would like to learn more about the settings on my camera to accomplish even more.....

    I want to learn how to make adjustments to my camera to get the full advantage of what I have to work with.

    I would love to learn how to use my camera to its full potential. I only use my camera to point and shoot and would love to learn all the features. It is nothing fancy but it would be a great start.

    My camera offers many options that I cannot utilize. I would like to learn to operate my camera to the best of it's abilites and then decide if I need to upgrade my camera after first upgrading my knowlede and skills with what I already have. I would like to be able to correct the flaws that I see in my photos by knowing how to adjust the settings that affect lighting etc. Thanks for the opportunity to win such a great course.

    My husband bought me an awesome Nikon SLR camera and I've yet to take it off the automatic setting! I've seen those amazing pros take some priceless Christmas pictures of my kids, and this year, I'd really like to capture them myself.

    I definitely want to demistify the magic of manual mode and learn a bit more on composition too! Great giveaway , thanks!

    I would love to take better pictures. I currently own a Nikon 800 and being mom to 9 kids I use the camera a lot but likely not nearly to its full potential. Thanks for considering me and offering the contest. I hope to win!!!

    I would love to do the "Magic of Manual mode" class and learn how to take full control of my camera. I've taken some classes with "Click Gone Wild" before and know just how wonderful Gemma and Rhonda are as teachers. I have noticed a wonderful change in my photo taking abilities since taking 3 of their classes last Spring.

    This would be the best contest to win ever! On my "To Do List" for the last few months, is "Learn How to Use my camera Properly!!!". With an 8 month old, my hubby allowed me to splurge on a camera, as I am in love with taking pictures! The problem is, I have never taken the ME time to sit down and learn how to properly use it! I know my husband would be thrilled, as would I, to finally learn how to use this camera we splurged on!

    I would love to learn how to use some of the features on my camera to take pictures of my two boys and to take much better photos of cakes for my business :)

    I really want to take their "Magic of Manual" course, been wanting to take it for a while now. I just bought a new Canon Rebel this summer and would like to learn more! I already liked them on Facebook prior to this contest.

    I would love to learn how to use my camera properly to take great pics of my little man! I splurged on a Nikon D3000 last year and haven't had time to learn how to use it to its full potential and would love to learn! Thanks for this great contest.

    Having a blog of my own I know how important great pictures are! I am ok with pictures but I would love to take it to the next level. It is time to make friends with my camera. So glad you showcased them! Some great advice on their blog!

    I have already taken some courses and they have helped me oyt a great deal. I would like to learn how use all the features on my Nikon, I know I am not using it to its full potential. Would like to learn some advanced tricks as well.

    I would love to learn how to get the most out of our SLR we bought to take pictures of our son!

    I recently got a new camera and know I have more to learn but would really like to win this to give to my friend. She is very well versed in the art of photography (I think she minored in photography at university) but she really wants to learn and understand the difference between 35mm picture taking and digital. She gives so much to me - I want to give her something that she loves back <3

    I would love to be shown how to use my camera, every picture I take is blurry or theres a delay and then I miss the shot I wanted. Its very frustrating not being able to get great pictures of my baby girl!

    I would love to learn how to really use my SLR properly. Three years and I still haven't read the instruction manual properly. Using the 'take 100 shots and keep your fingers crossed approach' - I'm sure I'm missing some tremendous opportunities to get fabulous shots of my kids.
