Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPlookup
Tilt your eyes upward for this weekend’s hashtag project: #WHPlookup. 👀 Here are some tips to get you started:
Think vertical. Exaggerate the vertical composition of your photos and videos by putting your hair up in a beehive-styled do, building a five-scoop ice-cream cone or stacking a tall pile of summer reading.
Shoot from a low angle. Capture the height of a redwood tree canopy from the forest floor, or take a street-level Hyperlapse of the sun rising between skyscrapers.
Capture the action. Focus on a basketball player dunking, an airplane flying directly overhead or the mountain summit where you’ll finish your climbing journey.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPlookup hashtag only to photos and videos shared 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 shared over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Hello, world! Meet four love-struck Pacific parrotlets named Winter, Sprig, River and Willow (@freyaeverafter_). “They are tiny parrots with huge personalities,” says Rupa Sutton, their human. “They can be very sweet, but feisty.” For example: “Last month, we decided to welcome Willow into the crew in hopes of her and River making a love connection. Instead, there’s been lots of drama — Sprig fell in love with Willow and left Winter, Winter was seen flirting with River, and River, who initially gave Willow the cold shoulder, decided he wanted her after all. Thankfully the birds have paired up and are once again a happy flock.”

When Juliana Horner (@vesperucca) is asked about her style of makeup, even she can’t describe it. “I have a natural tendency to break away then come back to abstract work,” says the 26-year-old artist, who works not only with makeup, but also illustration and fashion — and she has aspirations in the field of virtual reality design. “My drawing and my makeup converged at a certain point. They slowly merged into one stream of this really weird makeup style that I don’t have a name for.”
Throughout all of her art, Juliana is inspired by common themes. “I have a pretty feminine perspective that shows up in my work, and I really love color. I’m addicted to saturation. My eye is always going to gravitate toward the saturated part of a scene, and I like to think how I can bend or contort that saturation in a more pleasing way.”

Through his charcoal portraits, South African artist Nelson Makamo (@nelsonmakamo) works to change negative perceptions of African children. “How do you stop the judgment of a child?” says Nelson, who was born in 1982, 12 years before the end of apartheid. “I started adding glasses to some portraits, and just by doing that, it completely changes how someone looks at the painting. They won’t look at that child in terms of a portrait of a child from Africa. A lot of people start seeing a reflection of themselves. That is what art is there for: to show how common we all are.”
Today is #MandelaDay, a celebration of the 100th birthday of the late Nelson Mandela, an anti-apartheid leader and former president of South Africa. “Today, we are what we are because of his legacy,” says Nelson. “When I see people responding to my work, the person that comes to mind is Nelson Mandela. He fought for us to have moments like this where we share ideas. If one man can create a legacy that unites the world, we need to make sure that legacy lives on.” Photo by @nelsonmakamo

Though her #ASMR hobby is a fun activity, making slime has helped Soll-ip Shin (@slimesorim) recover from a debilitating injury. “After I hurt my back a few years ago, my daily routine just broke down. My body was constantly in pain and my mental health took a turn for the worse,” she says. “I’m now a different person. Slime really changed my life and my attitude. It gave me the courage and will to try new adventures.”

Kayla Petering (@this.little.wandering) handed a bunch of flowers to her 3-year-old daughter and photographed what came next for #WHPflowerpower. “I love how gently she is carrying them even though they are so much bigger,” says Kayla. “It feels beautiful and powerful.” 💐 Photo by @this.little.wandering

“I love the low perspective and the different colors,” says 23-year-old German photographer Manuel Dietrich (@manueldietrichphotography) of his photo of Mount Seceda. “It feels like being a little ant that sits on one of those flowers, looking toward the mountains.” 🌼 #WHPflowerpower Photo by @manueldietrichphotography

“I love the idea of art moving and breathing,” says 23-year-old makeup artist Georgina Ryland (@georginaryland). “It doesn’t just sit on the wall — it lives.”
Georgina began playing around with makeup at the end of high school, then studied at the Australian Academy of Cinemagraphic Makeup, where she learned to work with prosthetics, historical makeup and facial hair — it’s also where she started experimenting with her own body art. “I use skin-safe face and body paints, as well as regular makeup like eyeshadows, eyeliners, pigments and lipsticks,” she says. “It takes about six to eight hours to paint a scene on myself, and cleaning it off takes roughly 30 seconds in the shower! It can be a bit sad to see one I am particularly fond of go, but then I can always try a new one.”
