One of the very cool accessories that I saw at PhotoPlus 2012 were these urban backgrounds from Lastolite. These things fold up small and pop up into a large 5×7 background. Although the material is some sort of fabric the designs on them look absolutely real on camera.

You can get some sense of the effect in the video above; however, for a taste of how amazing these look with proper lighting, check out these samples from Frank Doorhoff.

They should be available soon. Keep watching here at B&H Photo.

Check out the video above a quick overview of the Lastolite Strobo line of lighting modifiers for hotshoe flashes from PhotoPlus 2012.

Here’s a great video from Joe McNally and Adorama TV.  Joe’s working a Nikon D800 with the built-in flash as the commander flash, a Lastolite Ezybox softbox with grid and a red-gelled speedlight for a background light.

If you haven’t checked out Joe’s book, The Hot Shoe Diaries, there’s lots more of great speedlight info like this in there.
