This Weekend’s Hashtag Project: #WHPbluronpurpose

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 photo announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

The goal this weekend is to capture photographs that are intentionally out of focus. There’s a small window of opportunity when your camera is attempting to re-focus where, if you have your trigger finger ready, you can capture beautiful blur on purpose! This technique often works best in low light, with a little bit of luck & a lot of patience.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the hashtag #WHPbluronpurpose 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!
