Rehoboth Beach, DE, April 15, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Excited and brimming with great anticipation, Nicole Alt Photography relocated from New Jersey to Delaware in 2012, hoping a change of scenery would change her fortune as well. Moving is always a daunting process, yet when it’s far from people and everything you knew for decades, it’s that much more intense. Luckily, heading southward, and away from the seemingly endless NJ and New York traffic jams, proved to be a smart and welcoming decision.
After receiving a valuable crash-course in portrait photography from an award-winning, family-owned locale last Summer, Ms. Alt furthered her education by taking a couple of classes at the University of Delaware. Simultaneously, Nicole was granted a great singing role in a local holiday musical, which was an opportunity that caused a tremendous resurgence in Nicole’s desire to be artistic; and so she couldn’t resist taking a short respite from photography. Afterwards, Ms. Alt returned to her scenic/ landscape roots, soon accumulating new online fans and garnering new interest in her photographic work: Gallery Espresso in Rehoboth was Ms. Alt’s favorite place to dine last Summer (the grilled all-veggie wrap is a salivating mainstay on their lunch menu), and so she is delighted to have been invited to showcase some of her pieces there (2nd place to do so, thus far) in April of 2013.
Wishing to revisit her lifelong fascination of the interplay of natural light and shadow, Nicole plans on including at least 1 or two black-and-white pieces amongst the work to be displayed at Gallery Espresso. “While utilizing rolls of negatives was still popular, I was compelled to experiment a few times with black-and-white film while walking around the NJ neighborhood in which I grew up. It was harder than I thought to avoid letting doubt creep in, and so in the early stages, I assumed I had to first be able to mentally transform my literally colorful surroundings so movingly created by Mother Nature, into B&W. This proved to be somewhat difficult to say the least: However, when the prints were ready, I was grateful that I’d followed my very strong instinct in some cases, as the ones I continue to treasure to this day were the scenes in which I would up simply judging the composition and action (or subject) occurring...and stopped imagining I wasn’t up to the task.”
Never fear, fans of color saturation, as Ms. Alt is also a modern woman at heart, and may even select an abstract piece showcasing a rainbow palette of colors. Still, Nicole needs your help, and would enjoy hearing from any reader on what types of photographs she should show at her upcoming exhibits: What transfixes and inspires you? What captivates you as you go about your daily lives? If you’re up to this challenge, please contact Ms. Alt anytime via her website, ScenesAndDesigns.com.
