Twenty-Five Empathetic, Joyful, and Behind-The-Scenes Celebrity Portraits

These casual portraits show us something different, personal, and real.

What makes a great celebrity portrait? Do the rules change for portraits of "everyday" people?
It's a mix of mood, time, light, and the connection or relationship between the photographer behind the lens and the person in front of it.
These photographs from Luupe photographers show celebrities with a range of moments and emotions – sometimes playful, off the cuff, behind the scenes, or with their guard down.
