Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPTheGreatIndoors
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 take beautiful and creative photos of interior spaces. Some tips to get you started:
- The make-or-break part of shooting any interior is the light. Shoot when the space is flooded with soft, natural window light and turn off any electric lights you can control.
- Before you start shooting, take some time to declutter the space. If it’s a room of your own, tidy up and make sure decorations are simply and elegantly arranged. Don’t be afraid to rearrange your home to get the shot you want!
- For a polished look, pay careful attention to perspective and aim to keep vertical lines parallel. Many mobile phone cameras let you enable a grid when shooting. Turn it on to help you get your lines nice and straight.
PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPTheGreatIndoors 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!

Happy Zoo Lover’s Day! Since the London Zoological Gardens were established in 1828, zoos have been a place to marvel at some of the most fascinating wild animals in the world, all in one place. Many zoos, however, have developed broader and more ambitious goals around education and conservation, engaging visitors in deeper ways with the issues that animals and their habitats may face in the wild.
