This weekend’s tag was #WHPfromwhereiwalk, which asked participants to take a creative video looking down as they walk. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPfromwhereiwalk

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 a creative video looking down as you walk. Some tips to get you started:

  • Hold your phone steady and level to the ground as you walk to avoid shake. If you’re filming with the Instagram camera, make sure Cinema Mode is on for a super stable video.
  • Even though you have a fixed perspective, the setting brings your video to life. For example, bare feet walking through a field tell a very different story than high heels walking down a busy city sidewalk.
  • Keep your ears open as you shoot! Whether it’s traffic rushing past, voices in the background or the sound of the ocean, the sounds around you add context to your film.

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