Nae Making Things. Statement

by | Jun 3, 2021 | English, NaeMakingThings, NFT, Statements

TLDR: Nae is my niece, she is 9 years old. I am a photographer, and she is an aspiring baker. Like most kids, she likes the arts, and so I have been teaching her about photography.  I also want her to become an expert on the blockchain and be ready for the future.  

The backstory: in June of 2020, because of the pandemic, I decided to drive from Houston  pick up my brother, his wife Alexandra, and my niece Nae and head to Chicago to stay with my sister Maria. During this trip, I started teaching Nae about photography. I brought an old polaroid paired up with the new film from The Impossible Project.  I gave her few instructions, and she began taking photographs,  

A few months later they all decided to move temporarily to Houston to be together during the pandemic. Nae received a used Olympus 4/3 mirrorless body camera for her birthday and I gave her the Olympus 4/3 kit lenses, a few instructions, and off she went on her own taking photos. 

I will most likely be the one keeping up most of the blog for her as she is allowed limited screentime each day. I will be converting her photos to NFTs and I will be teaching her how to use Adobe Suite. As I have done up until now, my instructions are technical. She has a very strong sense of what she likes and of what she is trying to accomplish with each photo,  

At some moment I suspect she will take over this blog (if she is still interested) I plan to help her have the skills she needs: photography, animation,  blockchain, NFTs. crypto wallet, crypto payments, IPFS, etc. at that point she will be able to shape it into exactly what she wants it to be
