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 announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.
The Instagram community celebrated its fourth birthday this week, and we’ve decided to celebrate with balloons. The goal this weekend is to capture creative photos and videos that feature balloons. Some tips to get you started:
From a giant, multicolored balloon bouquet to a word made of silver inflated letters or even balloon animals, if you can dream it up, there are balloons for it. Let your creativity run wild.
Think about the effect of a single balloon compared to a group and what they’ll look in like in different places. A lone balloon in an unexpected location tells a very different story that large groupings assembled for a party.
Finally, from the process of inflation, a struggle against the wind to the final pop, balloons move in interesting ways. Keep these in mind for video—and don’t forget the balloons can be filled with more than just air.
PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPballoons hashtag to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs and videos to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged image or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured Monday morning.
