Reversed front element Helios 55/2 portraits?

I have seen several videos and pictures taken with Helios 55/2 with reversed front element, most of them vith the unique rounded bokeh on close-up photos. However, I have never seen any portrait made by such a lens. Is there any reason for that?

If so, is there another modification of this lens allowing to take portraits with this emphasized bokeh?

I do have this lens, but on my APS-C camera it is quite difficult to get such a bokeh ...
