Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPtransparent

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.

The goal this weekend is to take creative photos of—and through—transparent objects. Some tips to get you started:

  • Remember that windows aren’t the only transparent objects. Keep an eye out for unique items like paperweights, water glasses, jars and anything that may be made of glass or clear plastic.
  • Just because you can see through an object doesn’t mean it’s invisible. There’s beauty in capturing the way these items distort light and what you see when you look through them.
  • Alternatively, experiment with plain backgrounds and soft light to make your objects seem even more minimal. Vases and jars can be especially fun when photographed this way as their contents seem to float in space.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPtransparent 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!
