“Sprezzatura”

“Sprezzatura”  spoken by the Renaissance author – Baldassare Gastiglione

The very word sums up how I feel when I am in my element of photography….”Sprezzatura” = maintaining GRACE under PRESSURE = “Effortless”

When I look through the lens of my camera and press the shutter, I know that I have either gotten the shot off or not.  In my mind and in my heart I know that what has just happened is magnificent beyond words…a moment in time frozen…and that it was birthed as I “maintained grace under pressure.”
