Being a minimalist and also being a tech-loving person can often be at odds with each other. I must work hard to control my G.A.S. (gear acquisition syndrome). Below is a list of my curated tools. I often evaluate this list and sell off items I no longer use. (updated 1.20.23)
Fuji XT4 I love this camera and all the manual controls on the body. The film simulations are stunning, and the camera body is also not too large. All around, one of the best cameras on the market today.
Lenses I Use
- Fuji 23mm f 2
- Fuji 60mm f 2.8 Macro
14 Max Pro.
M2 iPad Pro
I do most of my writing on my iPad with the Magic Keyboard and love editing photos with the Apple Pencil. It’s a fantastic setup; this is all I bring when traveling.
14″ M1 MacBook Pro
I’ve been all Mac since the 1990s – they are powerful and work. The new M1 Macbook Pro is fantastic. I love that the SD card reader is back. The screen is beautiful, and the keyboard has an excellent feel while typing, not to mention that the laptop is blazing fast!
Lightroom CC and Classic I use both versions of Lightroom to edit. Both have features that I use.
Final Cut Pro Powerful video editor from Apple.
PKM (personal knowledge management) and Projects
Craft is a visual person’s dream for creating documents and storing things you want to remember. I have my projects, second brain, design ideas, receipts, recipes, household documents, and so much more. It’s a visual filing cabinet.
Tasks and Project Timelines
Apple Reminders – I’ve tried them all but keep returning to Reminders’ simplicity. I have Homepods around my house, so I can ask Siri to add things to various lists or remind me of things without stopping what I’m doing.
