And the winner is.....

We want to give a big shout out to everyone who entered our Everyday Photo Contest over on our Clicks Gone Wild Facebook Page.  It was so wonderful to see all the likes on the images!  We asked some photog friends to help us judge the photos to determine a winner.  We were looking for the best image overall, based on technique, creativitiy, and relation to the theme "This is what my everyday looks like..."  And the winner is Amanda McCue Van Dalen.  She has won up to $75 in Clicks Course Cash or $50 to the charity of her choice.  Congratulations!

Clicks Everyday Photo Contest Over On Facebook

Clicks Gone Wild photography courses teach people how to take better everyday photos.  There are many people clicking more confidently as a result of 1, 2, or even more of our courses, and we LOVE it!!

In an effort to spread the word about our informative courses and to reward one lucky snap-happy Clicks supporter, we are having our first ever photo contest.  (Yeah!!!)  And to the people who have suggested this along the way - as always, we thank you for your ideas.  :)

Check out all the information for the Clicks Everyday Photo Contest below and our upcoming course schedule at http://clicksgonewild.blogspot.com/p/class-schedule.html

We love our work!! And you will love The Magic of Manual Mode!!

Gemma and I had a 'work day' yesterday, and together we oooohhhhed and aaaawwwwed over some images that Allyne, one of our participants in The Magic of Manual Mode (November 2011) had posted.  We loved her baby picture so much, that we asked permission to share it here with you, as a side-by-side with an image from before the course.  Isn't this fantastic?!  Images like this are a result of education and determination.  Allyne, you have both, and talent to boot.  :)

(NOTE: These were both taken with a dSLR)

Seeing people producing images like this is one of the reasons we love teaching photography!  Parents love getting fantastic pictures of their children as they grow.  (And we've taught a lot of grandparents too, who of course want brag-worthy photos of their beloved grandchildren to share!!)  When we ask participants in our courses to introduce themselves and tell what they like to take pictures of, the answer is often "the people I love."  We couldn't agree with them more!!

The Magic of Manual Mode is our advanced course, teaching how to correctly expose images by taking full control of all of your settings in Manual Mode.  This is the perfect way to learn how to use your digital SLR camera to its full potential!  What is unique about our courses is the relaxed, in-person instruction and the sheer volume of information we cover in an enjoyable and logical way.  You learn by watching comprehensive slides and trying everything you are taught.  We (Rhonda and Gemma) are both there to teach, support, and help you along the way.  The Magic of Manual Mode is a five-hour course, which includes a quick break to eat.  And time flies when you are having fun and learning about something that you are passionate about!  We provide very detailed course notes to take home with you and the opportunity to submit assignments for feedback when you return home and start to put into action your new knowledge and skills.

Today, March 1st, marks the opening of registration for our March session of The Magic of Manual Mode.  This course is being offered on Saturday, March 24th, 2012, starting at 10:30 a.m. at the Arnprior Public Library.  Registration is limited and is on a first come, first serve basis.  The cost of this course is $215.  To register, please send your registration request to clicksgonewild@gmail.com and we will send you an e-mail with details on how to pay to register.  Looking forward to seeing you there!

**Thank you to Allyne for letting us share her work.  We would also like to share her business page.  Check out Kristal Products here:  http://www.kristalproducts.com/
