3 x 10: 3 people discuss up to 10 of their own images (15 minutes maximum) - why they took them, how they took them and any manipulation done to achieve the finished image.

2 x 5: 2 members swap 5 images out of the camera. Each then works on their own images and the images of the other member to produce a final image. The members then present and discuss what they did with the images and why.

Please note that there is a 20p charge for tea or coffee. Members are asked to wash up their own cups.
