Weekend Hashtag Project:
This weekend the challenge is to make images and videos that are illuminated with natural light, as in this photo from Hiroki (@).
Start with the light source. Sunlight, moonlight or even starlight set the tone for different images, whether a landscape under the star-filled sky or a beach scene on a bright sunny day. More abstract effects of light can be found in rainbow light or a mass of fireflies dancing in the dark.
Scout your location. Look for places where light has a more dramatic effect, whether coming in shards through trees in a forest, bouncing off of a reflective building, glistening on the surface of a lake or pool, or simply coming through a window to add shape and contrast to your subject.
Time it right. Think about the time of day and how the quality of light affects your subject or scene. Whether the soft hazy light at dawn, the hard shadows of the midday sun or the colors at sunset, use these qualities of light to set the mood and atmosphere of your images or video.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the hashtag only to photos and videos shared over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. By adding the hashtag, you consent to and grant Instagram all rights to repost your photo or video. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video shared over the weekend with the hashtag is eligible for the project and, if selected, to be featured next week.
