This Weekend’s Hashtag Project: #WHPdearphotograph

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 photo announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

This week we’ve been inspired by Dear Photograph (@dearphotograph) and, as a result, we’re asking you to take an old film photograph or vintage postcard, hold it up against the original setting and then take a picture of it for #WHPdearphotograph. Some tips to get you started: tap to focus on the photograph in the foreground before taking the picture, share a story or memory about the old film photograph or antique postcard in your caption and, most importantly, be patient! It may take some time to line up the photo—try moving your hand closer or further away from the object you’re shooting.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the hashtag #WHPdearphotograph 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!
