Photo by @geoffreyberliner for @penumbrafoundation “The greatest artists, the most eternal artists, the ones that really have longevity, are the ones that were dedicated and devoted to their work and gave parts of themselves,” says Geoffrey Berliner, executive director of the nonprofit Penumbra Foundation (@penumbrafoundation). “Great art stems from great tension and great investigation and great suffrage and great living.” The New York City organization is on a mission to bring together the art and science of photography through programs and workshops for aspiring and veteran photographers, alike. In the digital age of point, click, delete, repeat, he believes it’s more important than ever to preserve and explore archaic formats like tintype, one of the earliest (and most complicated) photo processes made popular in the 1860s, as a means to develop voice and creative literacy in the next generation’s great artists. Great art, Geoffrey believes, starts with story: “When you teach a kid comprehensive storytelling, that one kid can go forth and create work that can make a huge impact in the world.” Watch our Instagram story to see Geoffrey and other artists in Brooklyn at Photoville, a pop-up village of shipping containers featuring photo exhibitions from all over the world.

Photo by @zahramonsef It wasn’t the colorful hair accessories that drew Zahra Monsef’s (@zahramonsef) eye at this weekly Monday market — it was the car they’re sitting on. “The Paykan is an old and memorable car for most Iranians,” Zahra explains. “It inspired me to take this photo.” 🚘 #TheWeekOnInstagram

Featured photo by @filipefoto Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPdynamic Ready, set, go! This week, the goal is to create photos and videos that capture energy and movement, as in this featured photo by Filipe Costa (@filipefoto). Here are some tips to get you started: Use Instagram’s creative tools to showcase kinetic energy in your daily life. Try a Boomerang of a morning running group or a Hyperlapse of an arena filling up with fans. Or make a Rewind in Instagram Stories of your dog playing fetch then share your video to your feed. Decide on a type of movement you want to focus on — sporting events, urban commutes, fall activities like apple picking — and go get in on the action. Let your camera lens draw your eye toward the most animated parts of the setting. Consider a scene that might at first glance appear calm and still. Where can you find the subtle forces of energy, and how can you highlight them in a single image? PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPdynamic 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.

Photo by @elias.williams Twenty-six-year-old photographer Elias Williams (@elias.williams) works quietly and methodically with his large-format camera, a cumbersome device about the size of a toaster oven. “Visually committing to a space or a person, setting up the camera, getting under the dark cloth, seeing upside down and backwards, focusing a loupe [magnification device] on the ground glass, putting in the film holder, cocking the shutter and pressing the cable release — it all makes for a slow, hands-on and therapeutic process that demands focus,” explains Elias. “Because I’m a very introverted person, the camera itself works as a great icebreaker for first time interactions when making portraits.” These images emerge from a mutual sense of curiosity between the photographer and the photographed, often within blocks of his home in New York City’s South Bronx. “I try to connect with people up to the moment where they allow me to represent just a piece of their complex, true being.”

Starting today, you can play with face filters while sharing live video. Whether you’re channeling a kitten or want to add some stars or rainbow light to your face, you can easily try on face filters while connecting with friends and followers in the moment. To use face filters in live video, tap the face icon in the bottom right corner before or during your broadcast. Tap any filter to check out a new look, and play around with as many as you’d like. You can also try on the new sunglasses face filter — available exclusively in live video for the next week — and tap to change the scenery reflected in your lenses. When your broadcast has ended you can share a replay to stories, or choose “Discard” and your live video will disappear from the app as usual. Face filters in live video will be rolling out globally over the next several weeks. To learn more about this update, check out help.instagram.com.

Video by @e_known Enon Avital (@e_known) reached for a bottle of honey, not an inkwell, when he wrote a message of good wishes for Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. “At the beginning, I was doing traditional typography — just ink on paper, pencil on paper. Nothing like I’m doing now,” says the New Jersey-based designer and web developer. But eventually Enon looked to more unconventional materials — everything from kiwi to pencil shavings — and turned them into Hebrew typography. “I like the pieces I can eat at the end. That’s always fun,” he says. Rosh Hashana begins this week and focuses on leaving the old behind and embracing the new. “We drop all negativity,” says Enon. “When the community as a whole asks for forgiveness and resets, we are all refreshed. That is what Rosh Hashana is all about.”

Photo illustrations from (in order of appearance) @babbym for @fashion_east, @halpernstudio, @susiebubble and @richardquinn1 Preppy uniforms, band Ts, combat trousers, Japanese prints — you name it, Susie Lau (@susiebubble) has worn it. “What phase haven’t I gone through?” says the London born-and-raised fashion blogger. “My interest in fashion really started when I was growing up in Camden, seeing how people expressed themselves through clothing,” she says. “I approached it in a really geeky way, reading up about costume and fashion history in the library and buying magazines, cutting things out to make inspiration collages. It was a form of escape.” When she began her blog, Style Bubble, in 2006, Susie’s only intention was to keep it as her own personal hobby. “When I first started, it very much felt like I was an interloper, especially in fashion, which has always been so guarded and exclusive as an industry,” she says. But as the age of social media dawned, Susie’s blog remained at the forefront of the fashion world. “A decade on, fashion blogging has become an industry in itself,” says Susie. “It’s been good to witness that change gradually, and to know what my own niche is — which is namely discovering young talent.” Watch our Instagram story now to join Susie behind the scenes — and in the front row — of London Fashion Week.

Photo by @foodventurer_ Despite the endless spread of delectable dishes that Indonesian food photographer and blogger Prawnche Ngaditowo (@foodventurer_) enjoys, it’s the people that matter most when it comes to dining. “Without the company of friends, family and loved ones, the meal is just a meal,” says Prawnche. “After all, happiness should be shared, right?” Prawnche’s culinary interest began at a young age in his family’s kitchen, tasting his mother’s Chinese and Indonesian recipes. “As the youngest son, somehow I got to be the only one on the judging panel,” says Prawnche, now 29. After moving to Jakarta in 2011, Prawnche started his blog, “Foodventurer,” in order to combine his passions for writing, photography and food. One day, he even hopes to open his own restaurant: “Like a safe haven, where people could feel at home.” 🍲 Feast your eyes on our Instagram story now to join Prawnche on a tour of Indonesia’s tastiest cuisines.
