Miranda McDonald is a photographer who went on tour with a musical act for two months. While she was gone, she enlisted her friend Josell Mariano to take care of her cat, Jade. Mariano got along great with Jade, and when McDonald arrived home, she found that Mariano had shot a series of portraits of Jade!
Mariano, who’s both an actor and a photographer, is very familiar with being in front of and behind the camera. “I used a 6Dmk2 with an f/2.8 24-70LII, and an f/1.4 50mm. Lighting is an Einstein strobe with a 24-inch beauty dish,” he said. His skills aside, Jade also did quite a nice job posing for the lens. “Jade was a better model than I thought but was still super wiggly,” Mariano added. “She was distracted by treats and her favorite toy (which is a broken string on a stick).”
