Bokeh is all the rage these days, but sometimes it’s just not practical to take subjects outdoors. Rather than risk the elements, Lastolite thinks they have a better solution for studio photographers: an out-of-focus background.
The company is out with a pair of new reversible backgrounds that will enable almost any camera/lens combo to recreate a bokeh effect. One features a blurred seascape/autumn foliage and the other sports summer foliage on one side and city lights on the other. At 4 x 5 feet, these backdrops should handle close to full-length portraits and will collapse to about a third of their size for transport (they weigh in at 6.6 pounds).
The backgrounds will set you back about $205.
