    Looking again, I think this was one shot. The top-down view shortened pedestrian's form. Appears to be wearing suede jacket, swinging arms, possibly holding a paper. Some dark-ish collar or scarf. Grey hair.

    This may take some staging to re-create what originally was a planned, fortunate shot.

    1 second exposure from above on a tripod, and just do it a bunch of times with people passing by. No big deal.

    A fast walk (about 4 mph) is about 120 steps per minute; that means the right and left feet each move 60 times per minute. A slow walk would be about 30 times a minute. So a 1 second exposure sounds about right.

    For a slow walk (2 miles per hour) the walkers head would move about 3 feet in 1 second

    Keep the ideas flowing.. I'm looking for a suede jacket... And a volunteer from my neighborhood...

    I'll try half, quarter, tenth. Looks like a brisk pace.

    I'd suggest 1 sec, 1/2 sec and 1/4 sec

    I've seen the effect put to use in the recent past (2000s) in press photos that have won in some of the prestigious national contests (but which I cannot source, to some frustration). These pictures are very similar to the one the OP inquires about.. I doubt very, very much that the image in question is anything more than simply what has been presented - a well (or fortuitously) timed and slow exposure.

    I'm not expecting to win any prestigious national contests... But I took out a roll of Panatomic-X from the freezer because I'll need slow film to pull this off.

    Geez, you guys.
    It's very obvious how this picture came about.

    The pedestrian exploded.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Of course! There's some guys playing with fireworks in my town tonight. Maybe I can recruit a volunteer from one of them.

    I do that all the time http://www.apug.org/gallery1/showima...mageuser=42554

    Really, this is Tri-X, on a miserable, rainy day. If I remember correctly, shot at 1/15 or thereabout, handheld of course If you notice, all feet can be seen firmly planted and distinguishable, but the bodies of all beings on the left are not. They were walking fast to escape the rain. The only manipulation here is the heavy burning in and high contrast to emphasize the feeling of movement and the person sitting on the bench in the middle, perfectly still.
