Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPbwlandscapes
Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and 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 black and white landscapes. Some tips to get you started:
- When shooting landscapes, aim to include visual elements that will make your composition dynamic. In addition to a beautiful backdrop, look for interesting foreground objects and leading lines that draw your eye deeper into the photo.
- Try to visualize your photograph in black and white before you take it. Scope out scenes that have both bright and dark areas, as this will create a strong contrast in your final result.
- To make your photo black and white, try the Willow and Inkwell filters. For a different effect, try applying any of your favorite filters then taking the saturation all the way to zero.
PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPbwlandscapes hashtag to photos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs to the project. Any tagged image taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured Monday morning.
