Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPLineMeetsCorner

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.

This weekend, we were inspired by Samah El Ali (@poeticwordvomit)’s precise compositions and the #linemeetscorner hashtag that Geof Newsum (@slowjam98) created for them. The project’s tag was #WHPlinemeetscorner, which asked participants to create photos where at least one line meets the corner of the frame. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, and be sure to check out the rest here.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPLineMeetsCorner

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 compose photos with a strong line, and where at least one line meets the corner of the frame. Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Keep an eye out for strong lines as you plan your shots. Buildings, roads and other architecture make for great starting points.
  • Try shooting from a little farther back than you might normally. The wider angle gives you more room to crop in, rotate and make the lines meet the corners.
  • For an added challenge, try to hit multiple corners at once. Getting your lines to meet two or all four corners can lead to beautiful results.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPLineMeetsCorner hashtag to photos from 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.
