Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmovingphotos

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’s tag was #WHPmovingphotos, which asked participants to bring photos to life by capturing video of a scene they would normally photograph. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.

This Weekend’s Hashtag Project: #WHPmovingphotos

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.

Within the first 8 hours of launching Video on Instagram the community shared over a year’s worth of footage, and we can’t wait to see the beautiful videos you create for this weekend’s Hashtag Project! This weekend’s goal is to bring photos to life by capturing video of a scene you would normally photograph.

Here are some tips to get you started with the new video feature: place your phone on a flat surface or hold your phone still and don’t move it—that way you capture the movements that occur within a single scene. Press and hold the record button to capture just one clip for this project.

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