Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPchairaffair

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 beautiful and creative photos of an everyday object: chairs. Some tips to get you started:

  • Chairs come in all shapes and sizes. Look for a unique chair or a chair you find particularly beautiful and photograph it in a way that emphasizes its lines and shape.
  • Think about the significance of an empty chair and the story you want your photo to tell. A single chair on its own can be inviting or lonely. You can also arrange a group of chairs to imply a different kind of story.
  • Setting can be very important for this project. A simple or solid-color background will emphasize the shape of the chair. The chair’s natural setting (a home, restaurant or office for example) can help tell its story, but don’t be afraid to take a chair to an unlikely setting to create a surprising scene.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPchairaffair 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!
