Galaxy Note 3 & Snapseed

I’ve been walking around and testing  out the 13 Megapixel Galaxy Note 3.
It’s slowly becoming my go to in pocket camera for daily use. There are many apps for us photographers to use but here I’m displaying pictures I took with my Note 3 and with a couple of clicks on Snapseed for Android and bam Just the looks I wanted at the moment. Their not the most perfect images for the moment but just like my go to DSLR its gonna take some practice on holding and focusing on my device.

Holla Back - Brooklyn's Own - Band Shot

A couple of days ago I had the privilege to shoot a local band from Brooklyn, NY that go by the name of “Holla Back, Brooklyn’s Own”.

These guys are pretty awesome. They are a cover band that caters to the ever so popular wave of hip hop music. All respectable professionals and family men by day and a killer hip hop band by night. True entertainers, in a class of their own.
The day these guys called me to shoot I did my research. At first I thought they were a local funk/rock band in need of some promotional material. But after a couple of emails and links I got to know these guys style… they were from my neck of the wood. Brooklyn baby!

Holla Back, Brooklyn's Own - Studio Black & White

After an hour or two shooting in the studio these guys had me and the crew reminiscing all the vintage hip hop music we use to listen to back in the day. Back when rap music was all about fun, going out with the friends and having a ball. Break dancing, popping and locking, jumping around and making new friends everywhere we went. Listening to a song on the big yellow Sony walkman and rewinding it  back just to hear it again. Man I miss them days! Guys thanks for a fun time at the studio. I look forward to hearing more from you all again!

Hurricane Sandy Recovery – Staten Island, NY. – Midland Beach

Nearly two weeks after the hurricane hit here on the great state of New York. We all have been working together and helping each other recover one day at a time. Friends, Families and local businesses have all joined together and gathered food, clothing, home necessities and more for everyone who faced the wrath of Sandy. People from all over have come to help and give a hand to the victims in all sorts of ways.
Clean-up, food, and shelter is the major factor here. People want it all back! people want it to be normal again! Without the help of these courageous people from all parts of this great country it wouldn’t be possible!
I give credit to the locals here on Staten Island, lots of bloggers here spreading the word and making calls to people they know from all over. Small mom and pop businesses all have manned up and put their hard earned money towards the community they built their brick  and mortar on. These are true signs of caring. Strong communities helping one another! People giving others a shoulder to lean on and helping them go forward and never look back.

Its a new day and that’s reason for a new beginning! We’re all together in this! Let’s Keep Staten Island Strong!

Staten Island, NY – Midland Beach

Today I took the liberty to patrol the areas here on the Midland Beach neighborhood on Staten Island. I went out to visit the neighbors and offer some comfort and support. I went up and down avenues & streets to have a look for myself and get out of the funk and see what many others are saying and doing to keep it all together and collected. Many wanted to just vent and breathe, I was there to offer the support. Others were to broken up from all their loss, I too can relate. The one thing that really amazed me here in this town was how helpful everyone was with each other. Remember, I’m the new guy here in this family oriented neighborhood and I haven’t got to meet many at all since the new move from six months ago.
Today I walked around with the crew and shook hands with many business owners, families, city workers and more. I got to feel some friendliness and I also got some sarcasm but I made it known that I was there for support. You need a hot cup of coffee, some fresh water perhaps, charge your cell phones charged or even a hot meal you can find me a couple of blocks down on the deep end of the flood. Just ask for me, Jay Rodriguez. I’ll be there all day cleaning up my mess trying  to keep the neighborhood in tact and helping make sure everyone and anyone is okay.

Day two really brought a toll on me, but hey we can only keep going forward. It’s now time to clean up and start fresh again. Keep our town together and keep a look out for one another. Again, I share here a couple of more images from this Hurricane Sandy disaster. Some people asked me not to publish the images, others were grateful to share and help document this situation.
Please, if any of you have any resources that can help the others here on Staten Island please comment and share your information. I’m sure someone here on Midland Beach can benefit from something provided and help make things a little easier if possible!
