Born in Albania during a time of political unrest Blerta found escape through a stereo and a tape filled with Turkish and Egyptian music one of her cousins had brought over from Greece.

She discovered her innate talent for singing and dancing at age five but a couple of years later decided it would be more pragmatic to trade in her dancing shoes in exchange for textbooks and set her sights on one day attending law school. A few years later Blerta realized she could no longer deny her true calling as a performer and started skipping school to attend her older sisters rehearsals at the University of Dramatic Arts in Tirana. She later went on to become the first professional Albanian belly dancer earning respect for an art that was hardly recognized at the time. Leaving Albania at age fifteen, Blerta moved to the United States and after a few years to New York City and attended both the New York Film Academy and the famed Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre.

Blerta Gace is currently residing in New York City, on the verge of launching an international entrance into the music and performing scene, with the help of such famed producers as Darko Dimitrov and Genc Prelvukaj, collaborating with the best, she is storming and brewing up a big world debut. Aside from her music and performing, Blerta has also been honored by having her portrait "Holy Sin" by photographer Minush Krasniqi up for auction in Berlin, Germany. Through all of her blessings, Blerta credits her positive way of life as a major source of fuel, sending light to the universe is her motto and also a lifestyle she has adapted.

About Digital Photography

Digital photography, as opposed to film photography, uses electronic devices to record and capture the image as binary data. This facilitates storage and editing of the images on personal computers, and also the ability to show and delete unsuccessful images immediately on the camera or software itself. Digital cameras now outsell film cameras and include features that are not found in film cameras such as the ability to shoot video and record audio. Some other devices, such as mobile phones, now include digital photography features. The quality of a digital image is the sum of various factors, many of which are similar to film cameras. Pixel count (typically listed in megapixels, millions of pixels) is only one of the major factors, though it is the most heavily marketed. Pixel count metrics were created by the marketing organizations of digital camera manufacturers because consumers can use it to easily compare camera capabilities. It is not, however, the major factor in evaluating a digital camera. The processing system inside the camera that turns the raw data into a color-balanced and pleasing photograph is the most critical, which is why some 4+ megapixel cameras perform better than higher-end cameras.
