# Lenses

I love full manual older lenses. You can get extremely well built lenses with great glass for cheap (compared to modern alternatives). I enjoy using them, it makes me think.

# Accessories

# Desktop Applications & Tools

I use a mix of open-source software, leased and commerical software. I lease apps through SetApp, I love it.

# Development

  • Visual Studio Code - My editor of choice right now, can’t really fault it.
  • iTerm 2 Nightly - I prefer the customisation options you get with iTerm, also the global hotkey is a must.
  • SequelPro - Use for all my relational database needs, used it for years.
  • FileZilla - Whenever I need to quickly get into a server and see what I’m doing.
  • ImageOptim - Crunching images for the web, save some space or strip personally identifiable metadata.
  • Marked 2 - Previewing markdown I’m writing in Visual Studio Code.
  • Paw - I love native apps, Paw is an API tool for Mac.
  • Tower - The only Git client I have ever needed.

# Photography/Photo Editing

  • Lightroom Classic - I hope Adobe don’t kill this. I don’t mind Lightroom CC but I hate that your library has to live on the cloud.
  • MetaImage - Clean and efficient way to edit photo metadata.
  • Renamer - I have a couple of presets set up to organise my photos based on the metadata timestamps.

# Photography/Photo Editing

  • Darkroom - A brilliant photo editing tool that beautifully integrates with iCloud Photos. When they add the ability to adjust clarity I’ll ditch Polarr completely.
  • Polarr
  • RNI Films - The most realistic film presets I’ve found, also fantastic but simply editing tools.
  • TouchRetouch - One app that solves one problem well - and better than others attempt to.
  • Lively - Exporting live photos as GIFs and Movies.
