When You Ask a Photographer Friend to Babysit Your Cat…


Photographer and actor Josell Mariano recently had a friend ask him to babysit her beloved cat, Jade. He decided to use his time with the blue tabby cat to do a photoshoot.

“If I babysit the cat for more than 3 days, the photos just happen,” Mariano says.

“Here’s her face when she takes a s**t,” Mariano says.

Mariano shot portraits of Jade with a single strobe through a large diffused beauty dish located to camera right. He was using a Canon 6D Mark II with a 50mm f/1.8 at f/8 and 1/100s.

Mariano has since created a dedicated Instagram account for Jade and has now taken a position as her manager, agent, and poop scooper.
