    Time exposure for the effect

    Having a model who is happy to be in a graveyard at midnight also very useful :)

    But how did you do it? take two pics and on the same piece of film and ask her to move away?

    Its using long exposure
    You get the person to stay a certain amount of time (how long is how solid they will be) then move away and then leave the shutter open longer so background is more solid.

    That's the part where you experiment to get the right effect.

    It helps to have a digital camera so you can see the results immediately and so make changes to the time you've exposed it for. :)

    It would make some sense to cover up the lenses while the subject is moving, if you get excessive trails of course.

    Photoshopping this stuff will also give you much more control.
