"In this talk I will describe how I photograph wildflowers on my travels, and how my method of photography has changed over time. I will discuss the equipment I use (which is minimal) and how I process those photos to make them look more like I remember them. I will discuss the software I use to do this and will give some demonstrations. In addition, I will show how these same photos can be turned into Digital Paintings and I will show the process I use to do this." - Linda Cochran
