Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPliquidlandscape

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.

The goal this weekend is to take creative landscape photos that feature water. Some tips to get you started:

  • Keep an eye on the weather, as the environment will help set the mood for your shot. Sunny skies make for crisp photos, while grayer days tell a more somber story. As winter comes to the northern hemisphere, those in cold climates can also use the newly-forming ice to set a snowy scene.
  • Even if you don’t live near the ocean or within easy distance to a lake, you can still participate. Look for rivers, ponds, swimming pools or puddles to photograph.
  • There’s a lot of room for creativity when photographing landscapes with water. In addition to traditional landscape photography, think about the possibilities that slow-shutter techniques and reflection shots create.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPliquidlandscape 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!
