Bokeh & Disco Backdrops

If you've ever wondered what the heck Bokeh is, you're not alone!  This isn't a common word outside the photographer community, but basically it's the circle blur when the lens is out of focus.  Visit Wikipedia for a more in-depth explanation, but scrolling through our library below will give you an idea of what we're talking about.  It's all about lights and focus.  Whether you're wanting to further enhance your subject on a blurred background or to add a lively scene, look no further for the artistic blurs of Bokeh! These backdrops are fun, quirky, unique and sure to please.

Bokeh scenes can be abstract, festive, or take place in every day environments, like the city. Disco, on the other hand, is saved for the dance floor! Break out your bellbottoms and get ready to tear it up with our disco backdrops!

All of our backdrops come standard with a 3" pole pocket across the top.  More options available upon request.  Unlike the focus of bokeh lights, our backdrops will never go out of focus or blur since they are dye sublimated.  No fading and 100% washable and steamable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What's the point or advantages of using a bokeh backdrop?

Answer: There are a couple advantages to using a bokeh backdrop. The first advantage is that the blurry look of bokeh automatically creates emphasis on your subject(s). This can drastically cut down the amount of work in postproduction because your background has been blurred for you! The second advantage is that you get a unique look without having to do a lot of the work yourself (cursing yourself for how you put the lights away last time, untangling them, artistically draping them, checking for burned out bulbs, putting them back in the package so you can do the same thing again for the next shoot and start the cycle all over again). Even though the bokeh style is purposefully blurry, the image resolution itself is sharp and crisp, and all you have to do is hang it up, take your pictures, and take it down!

Question: What is the best way to achieve a blurry background? I know the bokeh backdrops are blurred to an extent, but how can I create the same effects?

Answer: We're no experts at photography here at Photo Pie, but there are a few different ways to get a blurry background that will emphasize your subject(s). Check out this step-by-step guide detailing three different ways to blur your background. We also have a blog post on this exact subject.
