Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPbokehinmotion
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.
This weekend’s tag was #WHPbokehinmotion, which asked participants to take a creative video using bokeh: the blurred part of an image that’s out of focus. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.
