Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPwilderness

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 every week announcing the latest project.

Get outside! The goal this weekend is to make photos and videos that celebrate our wild world — through landscapes, animal images and surprising moments in nature.

Here’s how to get started:

  • Find a perspective that best captures a sense of place — whether the grand view from atop a mountain or looking up at towering trees from deep within a lush forest.
  • Photograph during the golden hour — early in the morning or right before sunset — to add a magiclike quality to your images. You’ll find that a landscape transforms depending on the time of day that you shoot.
  • If you’re making video, record ambient sound. Think lapping ocean waves, the sound of crunching footsteps on a hike or crickets buzzing at night.

PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPwilderness hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.
