my little project this weekend - customizing my Bucky figure! because Bucky Barnes wears all black, muthafuckas. and doesn’t carry a bright red gun lol

it’s my first time ever customizing a figure and I had a lot of fun! I was only going to do his chest and right arm, and I ended up painting over everything but his metal arm and head :P

It’s time for another Vimeo Weekend Project!

Now, we’re all well aware of the power of the moving image. Whether it’s guys dropping in on thirty foot waves, a family's first trip to Disney World or a plastic bag floating aimlessly against a brick wall, moving images have excited or comforted all of us at some point.

What we’re perhaps less accustomed to is the power of still images. More specifically, series of photographs set to sound, used to tell a story. We frequently see this used in online journalism. I suppose you could call these “slideshows,” but this time around, we’re asking you to leave the corny transitions at the door. That said, it would be more appropriate to call these “photo essays.”

Check out Connie Preti’s Fostering Love for another example of a great photo essay.

Your photo essay should be non-fiction no longer than 3 minutes and made up entirely of photographs that you take specifically for this project. All submissions are due on Tuesday, August 2nd at 11:59 PM (EST). Also, don’t forget to submit your video to the Weekend Project Group.

The winner of this contest will get a free Plus account, or if you’re already a Plus member, we’re going to let you gift the Plus to whomever you choose (along with an extra 2.5 GB of upload space)! The runner-up will receive an extra 1 GB of upload capacity whether Plus or not.

Have a creative weekend everyone!

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPimperfections

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 goal this weekend is to photograph imperfections in your surroundings to show how mistakes and flaws can in fact be photographed in a beautiful way. Some tips to get you started:

  • Wrinkles in aging skin, colorful spills and stains, crooked walls and peeling paint are all imperfections that can add special charm and character to an image if looked at from a new perspective.
  • Look for the messy parts of a scene you might otherwise leave out of a picture and make them the focus of your frame.
  • Explore the imperfections of your photographs themselves — embracing blurriness, skewed lines and other technical factors you might ordinarily attempt to fix.

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