Welcome to
Monica Johansson and NatureFootstep.com
I am interested in nature photography and photo art and travels
as much as I can to find new areas to document.
I have many blogs and below you find links to them.

Headstart of exhibition and crop

I found this image from a rainy field in my files looking for a bird and decided to play around a bit with it.

I added a BOKEH texture of mine and this is the result.

I, sort of, got myself in a fun situation. As I mentioned earlier I will have an exhibition in the library starting  190902.

Monday evening I got an email. Due to changes this place will be empty until you start your exhibition. Do you want to use it???? 
They don´t like empty walls :)

Instead of 2 weeks I got almost 4.  Sure I want 

As the layout for the planned exhibition is not yet finished I quickly decided to use the extra time to play around with. I grabbed some pieces and went to the library next morning. When there I realized most of the posters was from Yellowstone 3 years ago. And my bird poster. Day 2 I added some of the chain pulls and pours. I have warned people on an INFO-paper that this time the walls will change constantly until the planned exhibition is set up.

This morning I thought I will use the board to the left to share some of my testing canvases. You never see test or unfinished objects in exhibitions so I think I will do that. Will be cool to see peoples reactions.

Fall is slowly arriving and kids are back to school.  Hope everyone is healthy and fine.

Preparing for exhibition

 Click image to enlarge!
NatureFootstep "Gott o blandat"  (Approx (Good and mixed")
This image will be used for advertising and header on FB, Instagram and local papers.

Poppy
One of our Mansions have a gorgeous flower field right now. Colors enhanced otherwise unchanged.

I think I will call this "Lost in space."
It is not yet finished. If it turns out as I want it I will include it to the Exhibition.
It is a canvas 40x30 cm. The orange stuff is a tangle of thin metal wire I found overrun by cars in the street. I liked the look of it. I glued 2 golden earth maps on the canvas. My concern now is how to fasten the tangle. I have got golden threads from a friend so I think I will sew the tangle to the canvas. I just have to make a test before I do. I don´t want to spoil it :) I also think of adding "Sprayed white stars" But not sure about it. What do you think??

Testing and exhibition

 Click image to enlarge!


These are my contribution to Gallery KIKK:s exhibition themed "Microcosmos"
This exhibition ends Aug 14th


Seascape!
This is a test to see what it will look like on my upcoming exhibition in the Library. I have the canvases and the scallops and they are a bit fragile. I got the aquarium a while ago from a friend and thought I might use it to "cover" them. And, hopefully make it more interesting.
This will probably be my last exhibition so I would like it to "stand out".

Flight to the heavens!
This dragonfly is created by an Industrial artist I know. I visited it and noticed the sun was right in it´s belly.  Can´t resist such a thing. :)  When I studied the image at home I was surprised to see a rainbow above it´s head. Used a filter in Photoshop to create the look on the clouds.

Sailing!
This is two sailing boats to start with. Twisted and filtered in Photoshop.

Sun is shining today and it is not that hot. At least not yet. It is still morning in Sweden. I can notice the fall is soon here.

Ice and water

 Click image to enlarge!
Golden angel in snowy weather
This is a mixture of paint and photography edit. The "snow" comes from one of my LP:s I painted on. The angel is a figurine I got from my daughter.  The landscape comes from a Scotland trip I was on.

 Frozen flowers 1 
 (three sizes of the same image creates the frame-effect)

Frozen flowers 2
The two images of Frozen flowers, is just that. I freeze them and when I take them out i five the ice a quick dip in water. Then I have to hurry get them photographed before it all melts.


The wave 2

The wave 1 and 2
I like the first wave I created with thick paint on canvas 12x18 cm. Yesterday evening I made the second one.
