Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPsilhouetted

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & 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.

Today marks the one year anniversary of Photos of You, the ability to tag people in your photos on Instagram! To celebrate, we’re bringing back one of our favorite Weekend Hashtag Project themes: silhouettes. The goal this weekend is to take creative silhouette photos. Some tips to get you started:

  • Silhouettes are all about light. Make sure your subject is positioned right in front of your light source, whether it be the setting sun, a bright window or a backlit screen.
  • Once you’ve framed your photo, tap the brightest part of your phone’s screen to set your exposure and get the silhouette just right.
  • Finally, don’t forget to tag the people silhouetted in your photo!

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPsilhouetted hashtag to photos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs to the project. Any image taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured right here Monday morning!

by missandrogyny for me (yay!)

And when he’s finally standing, Liam fussing over him, rubbing his hand at the red mark blooming on Harry’s forehead, does Harry learn two things:

One, he wasn’t actually hit that hard, and Tommo–or Louis, rather–is just as pretty when Harry is staring at him head-on and,

Two, Louis is the Adidas model he’s going to be working with on today’s photo shoot.

(or: AU where Harry and Louis are both models, and they decide being friends-with-benefits is a great idea. It isn’t.)

The “We Love You” project hopes to help black men reclaim their image.

Freelance photographer Bryon Summers started a photo series in July titled “We Love You” — a visual tribute to black men in America, and an outlet for the reclamation of their image in light of negative portrayals by the mainstream media.

Summers’ goal is to photograph 1,000 men and share their portraits on his Instagram page, before eventually assembling a book of their images and embarking on a similar project geared toward black women. 

He is also selling T-shirts inspired by the project, the proceeds from which will go to the families of victims of police brutality. Read more.
