Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPlightandshadow Weekend Hashtag…

By April 8, 2016 No Comments

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post every week announcing the latest project.

The goal this weekend is to make photos and videos highlighting the contrast of light and shadow. Here’s how to get started:

  • Seek out uniquely shaped shadows cast by a variety of objects — like spots of light pouring through the holes of a straw sun hat.
  • If shooting at night, play with using a heavy flash or fluorescent lights to create especially high-contrast imagery.
  • Use props to cast your own playful shadows, and capture them moving in creative ways through video.

PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPlightandshadow hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.
