Every Photography Lover Should Not Miss This Free Online Bokeh Simulator & Depth Of Field Calculator

Photography which once was a luxury for important memories has now become an obsession of a hobby. Many prefer selfies but the true photography lovers trample around the world and dangle over trees just for the sake of a perfect shot. Although a camera doesn’t define a photographer, it definitely gives the photographer the needed advantage. One of the brainstorming issue most of us have is to determine the accurate settings needed for a certain snap. After experimenting with the latest version of Bokeh Simulator & Depth Of Field Calculation, I’ve found it to be the most accurate simulator.

A literal definition of the world simulator could be defined as ‘a realistic imitation of the controls’. It’s a depth of field calculator with a twist. There are many online DOF’s but there are almost none that offer a background blur feature. Hence this webpage has allowed use to calculate close to precision of not only the DOF but also the lens and background blur (BOKEH) which provides with a more detailed calculation which eases photographers to use them in real life. Until now many DOF calculators provide a calculation with raw numbers which doesn’t quite give an accurate of how the end result of a picture would be.


The DOF simulator is a very good learning tool especially for beginners. Furthermore due to the fact of detailed description on the functionality of the tool it allows users to feel less insecure. As many offer only a basic tutorial, the creator decides to add both a step by step tutorial and the ‘help mode’. This provides a hand in hand guidance as the user navigates through the settings, giving everyone an opportunity to be accustomed minimally in terms of understanding the functionality of a camera’s settings as well as the lenses.

      Although the navigation of the simulator is easy enough, the recent update  has added a whole new set of amazing features. It now also allows the users to customize their Circle Of Confusion (COC), depending on the image size or the digital printing. The photographers can simulate their desired vision of a final image. For all the social media fanatics out there, there is a share button which allows the current simulations to be shared for opinions, updates or anything one’s heart desires. Finally the ‘Lock Frame’ which locks down the image changes whilst using the DOF and the bokeh, allowing one to view the changes when zooming but with constant subject size.

          For many though the question of the hassle of having an external plugin in order to use this may arise. As delightful it may seem the DOF & Bokeh simulator uses HTML5, CSS3 & Java Script with Angular Js. Hence no additional plugin would be required to enjoy the privileges. As for nomadic people whom often aren’t close to a laptop, there are the offline version and the mobile version with interfaces suited for smaller screens. So anywhere and anytime you would be able to continue your photography experiments.

          As a conclusion the designer of this simulator, has managed to fix as much of the flaws noticed in other simulators, making it not only user friendly but also accessible by everyone. Although currently only available in English and Polish it would be amazing if it would be language friendly towards other continents too .

          5 Killer Online Journal Tools That Make Journaling Easier and More Fun

          5 Killer Online Journal Tools That Make Journaling Easier and More Fun

          Journaling is one of the most useful personal development tools around. Not only does it help us process emotions and experiences, work through internal conflicts and improve our self-awareness, it also provides us with a way to keep a day-to-day record of our lives. Traditionally an activity limited to pen and paper, the expansion of consumer technology has enabled journaling to go digital.

          Saving your journaling entries online enables you to access them from anywhere, without having to carry a notebook and pen around, and provides you with digital features, like tagging and search functions.

          Here are a list of five online journaling tools you can use to bring your practice into the modern age:

          1. 750words


          750 words

            750words is a free online journaling tool created by Buster Benson. The site is based on the idea of “Morning Pages”; a journaling tool Julia Cameron suggests in her creativity course The Artist’s Way. Cameron advises aspiring creatives to start each morning with three pages of stream-of-consciousness writing to clear away the mental clutter, leaving you with a clearer mind to face the day.

            750 words is the three-page digital equivalent (assuming the average person writes 250 words per page) and lets you store all your journaling online. Each morning, you’ll receive a prompt asking you to write your 750 words, and the site keeps track of various statistics associated with your entries. The site uses a Regressive Imagery Dictionary to calculate the emotional content from your posts and provides feedback on features like your mood, and most commonly used words.

            750 words is simple to set up and is ideal for anyone who finds it challenging to maintain a consistent journaling practice. The site uses a number of incentives to motivate users, including animal badges awarded to journalers who complete a certain number of days in a row, leader boards, and opt-in monthly challenges.

            2. Ohlife



              Ohlife is designed to make online journaling as easy as possible. Once you’ve signed up for your free account, the website will send you an email each day asking “How did your day go?” Simply reply to the email with as much or as little detail as you like, and your response will be stored on your account, ready to view next time you log in.

              Ohlife’s appeal lies in its simplicity: no stats, no social sharing, no complicated organisational systems—the site is designed to provide you with a private, online space. Simply respond to the email each day (or skip the days you’re busy) and Ohlife will do the rest.

              3. Oneword


                OneWord is a fun online tool that provides you with a single word as a prompt and gives you sixty seconds to write about it. The concept’s aim is to help writers learn how to flow, and the prompts range from the everyday mundane to the profound.


                Oneword is not a private journaling tool: if you sign up, your answers will be published on the site’s daily blog, which contains a stream of users’ answers, and might be used by Oneword in the future. If you’d rather keep your answers to yourself, you can still use the tool for fun without giving out any personal details.

                4. Penzu

                  Penzu is a journaling tool that allows you to store your journaling notes online. The service also offers mobile apps for iOS, Android and Blackberry, so you can journal on the go and save your notes to your account. The basic service is free, however you can upgrade to Penzu Pro and get access to additional features, including military-grade encryption and the ability to save and sync data through your mobile, for $19 per year.

                  With either version of Penzu, you can insert pictures, and add tags and comments to entries, as well as search for older entries. You can set your posts to be private and viewable by you only, or share them with others.


                  5. Evernote

                  Evernote isn’t a purpose-built journaling tool, however its features make it perfect for keeping your journaling notes in one safe place. With the ability to keep separate “notebooks”, tag your entries, include pictures, audio and web clipping, Evernote will appeal to journalers who want to include more formats than just text in their entries.

                  Available online within a web browser, and as a stand-alone desktop app, the service also comes with a series of mobile apps covering almost every device available. These allow you to make notes on the go and sync between the mobile and browser versions of the app.

                  For additional features, including text recognition and the ability to collaborate on Notebooks, you can upgrade to Evernote’s premium service, which costs $5 per month.
