How to get a shot like this?

Hey guys,

I am wondering what is the technique or how was this shot achieved?

I do not think it is a long exposure or multiple exposures

Anyone knows more about it?

I think its probably a lens or prism something like that.

Looks like long exposure and moving the camera to me. Why wouldn't it be? Look at his other shots, similar style.

Well, the image is in focus, and just the edges have this feeling a long exposure shot. The contour is very much in parallel and find it hard to imagine how that could be a long exposure, the long exposures I have done I never get the second shot so aligned with the first shot.

Hmm that depends on the camera motion, no? I haven't tried to get an exact parallel silhouette, but I attached from one of my "random" movements in my last shoot I got this... model herself is in focus with a little silhouette (blue because of gels).

I think with a purposeful, parallel motion and strobes you would get the desired result. Use a rolling chair maybe.

It makes sense. thank you for your input.

Flash and camera moved a bit during the shot.

Never thought about moving the flash before. Gonna try that out :D

Maybe build a pendulum, put the lightstand on a skateboard or similar hmm...

I'd think double exposure. Not seeing any blurring from movement.

This one is a little tricky to figure out...some of his similar photos look like a combo of strobe (for the proper exposure) and constant light (for an underexposed shadow image?), with a long-ish exposure and some camera or model movement?
It may have some PS but I think more in camera than post processing...

Yes, it starts to dawn on me that is two lights. Thank you for your input.

There is detail in the darker area that can't be attributed to a second light. I still say double exposure.
