Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPreflectagram

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 capture photos and videos with beautiful and interesting reflections. Some tips to get you started:

  • Look for naturally reflective surfaces like ponds and windows, but keep an eye out for subtle reflections in wet sand or puddles. Don’t be afraid to bring a bucket of water and create your own!
  • Play with rotating your photo for an unexpected twist that puts the reflection on top.
  • Pay special attention to how you frame the photo or video—stand far away to show both the entire subject and its reflection or crop in closer for a more unique take.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPreflectagram hashtag to photos and videos 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!
