Getting Started

There’s an awful lot of material in the Lagoon Report, and it can be hard to get your feet on the ground.  There are a few ways to get started:

1.  Search.  There’s a search field in the upper right-hand corner of every page.  Simply punch in your search criteria like beaver or Third St. or Jimmy Jones and you’ll probably find what you’re looking for.

2.  Individual reports.  Lagoon Reports, and other special reports can be found in the menus at the top of every page, going right back to the very first Lagoon Report.

3.  Featured categories.  In development are new featured categories, thematic collections of photography from all over the Lagoon Report that show just the good stuff, omitting a lot of the imagery that’s only of interest ‘at the time’.

4.  Specific categories.  To the right of most pages is a menu called All Image Categories.  It’s a huge menu, but contains every single category of imagery.  Scrolling through it will let you find all the imagery related to wild peacocks, or mink, and everything else under the Island sun.

5.  Equipment tags.  Every single photograph is tagged with the equipment used, such as the camera, lens, and auxiliary triggers.  This can all be found in the metadata displayed under each image, and will let you find all images taken with the venerable Nikon Coolpix 4500, or the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4, or any of the other myriad of equipment used in the production of the Lagoon Report.

And, of course, if you still can’t find what you’re looking for, feel free to drop Sean a line and he can help sift through the back catalog.
