Porte-rait time

Veronica Porte

Freshman Veronica Porte is one of three all-around gymnasts on the Spartan team this season. At the 2006 Western Athletic Conference Women’s Gymnastics Championships in Logan, Utah, on March 25, Porte was SJSU’s top all-around performer and earned second team all-conference honors.


Portraiture is something I want to do a lot more of, and not just because I need the practice. I’m beginning to understand what’s possible when certain journalistic restrictions are lifted and the photographer is allowed to control the lighting and so forth. The fact that this photo is set up allows us to see a sweet, genuine smile, something we’d never get in action shots like this one from two weeks ago. Hard to believe it’s the same person, no?
