Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPspacedreams
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.
To celebrate the 45th anniversary of the first manned lunar landing on Sunday, the goal this weekend is to reach for the stars and take creative photos and videos inspired by outer space! Some tips to get you started:
- If you’re not sure where to begin, try visiting your local science museum, observatory or planetarium. Look for interesting new ways to capture the exhibits.
- Let your imagination fuel your creativity. Photos and videos inspired by astronauts, planets, galaxies, space shuttles and even science fiction are all options to explore. The sky’s the limit!
- Interested in trying your hand at astral photography? Grab a telescope, check to make sure it’s a clear night and try holding your phone’s camera lens to the eyepiece. After you’ve lined it up, tap the screen at the brightest part of the image to prevent your subject from overexposing.
PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPspacedreams hashtag to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs and videos to the project. Any image or video taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured right here Monday morning!
