You need layers & masks from a program like PS or PSE. Layer Masks. (external link)

And since that isn't your image, IMAGE POSTING RULES only allow you to post a link to it.

Well, it looks like people were running around with color lights and the guy and the girl got in three different poses so you see different streaks and colors, they either posed, moved quickly, then posed again (you can do that with long exposures) and, since you see some blur so I think it's a good chance they did that, or of course you can do "Photoshop magic" to get all kinds of wild stuff.

But, the one way to get a "double exposure" is to take a long exposure, have the subject pose for part of that, quickly move and pose again. While doing that process people going crazy with the colored lights could get that type of result.

It looks like a long exposure + three manually triggered flashes with different colored gels + simple "paint with light".

Given that the pose/facial expression are all identical. I would say that is a single exposure of the couple that has been duplicated in Photoshop. My conclusion is supported by the fact that the background has also been duplicated. The light trails may have been done at time of exposure, but would have been easier to shoot separately to add in post.

It's more than the couple that's been duplicated in post-processing. The tree line in the background is equally triplicated.

I'm quite familiar with photoshop thanks, I was hoping to get something like this in camera. I know a few people who do something like this but they won't reveal the secret.

As has been said, a time exposure is one way. But in my experience, the results are usually "allmmooost" what I wanted. Try it both ways & see which gives the most accurate results.

I would love to learn to do this. I know how to do layer masks, but still not proficient with using layers. Anyone care to expound a little more on how to work with layers in post to do something like this? I'm not so concerned with getting it all SOOC.

Also, are fairy lights the best for light painting?

Stroboscopic flash with different gels. The couple didn't move, the camera looks like it was rotated. As far as the streaks I'd imagine basic light painting doesn't need to be explained.
Hyogen, if you have a speedlight that allows stroboscopic settings, you are just setting the number of strobes and their firing interval. When the camera triggers the strobe, the timer will count down to the next flash, just change the gel and rotate the camera, or trip the flash manually each time.

thank you. I think my SB-900 does have repeater mode--I'll check it out.

What do you mean by perfect circles, chris? You mean in his other pics the light orbs? This is probably not what you're asking about, but of course he uses a light at the end of a string and swings the string around.

Would like to see your example!
