Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPnocturnal

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 take creative images and videos at night, seeking out surprising sources of light for your visuals. Here’s how to get started:

  • Natural light will be low, so look for unusual ways to light your subjects other than built-in flash – think street lamps, headlights from cars or glow sticks.
  • Seek out settings that come alive at night (like concert venues or city streets) or focus on the emptiness of areas that fall quiet when the day comes to an end.
  • If shooting on your phone, tap and hold your finger on your subject to lock the focus and exposure. Make sure your subject stands still to avoid blurriness in low light.

PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPnocturnal hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPsplitsecond

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 take pictures that capture a candid, fleeting moment. Here’s how to get started:

  • Seek out scenes full of action or people passing through — like a rowdy sports game or busy street corner — and make lots of pictures. The most interesting moments come unexpectedly and happen quickly.
  • Compose a photo with an interesting backdrop and wait for a dynamic moment to pass through your frame.
  • Shoot in a well-lit area to avoid camera blur when photographing motion.

PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPsplitsecond hashtag only to photos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. Any tagged photo taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.
