Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmirrormirror

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 using mirrors to capture creative photos. Some tips to get you started:

  • Seek out the unexpected. Think about how you can surprise people with what you capture in the mirror’s reflection.
  • Pay attention to your background and setting. What’s happening around the mirror tells as much of the story as what the mirror reflects.
  • Finally, have patience. Getting a shot just right with mirrors takes a lot trial and error as you adjust. Having a friend on hand can be especially helpful.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPmirrormirror 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!
