The Force Awakens DP Unleashes Behind the Scenes Set Photos From Film’s Shoot

Dan Mindel was the Director of Photography for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and now that the film has released and is breaking records everyday, he has posted some rad behind the scenes shots from the film’s shoot.

It’s clear from these Instagram pics that Mindel knows a thing or two about photography, because even though they’re personal behind the scenes pictures, they look very artistic and professional-like. You can check out a few of the images below.

EW has also released official images of Maz Kanata and Supreme Leader Snoke, which haven’t been available before now. They’re just shots from the finished film, so there’s nothing new to see per se, but they’re better than just looking at shots of their respective actors wearing dots all over their faces. Head on down below to check them out.
