Any ideas on how to achieve this effect?

Hi all,
I found a couple of images the other day which I would like to emulate the effect on my own photos. Ca anybody steer me in the right direction. Do you think it is an action, series of filters or other? All help greatly appreciated!

It seems that it's made of multiple images which are not directly derivated from a single one : multiple exposures while the subject is moving. So I suppose it can't be a filter or an action. Just carefully choosen pics, and put them on top , adjust opacity, and chose the good blending mode.
That's only my own guess of course.....

Its all done in camera. Long exposure + moving subject = that effect

meok is right, set on your camera long shutter speed and ask your subject to make some moves.

I think that you can also get this if you took a series of shots with the subject making very subtle movements and then layered the images on top of one another and play with opacity/blend modes. It looks like in the first image a layer with fabric or paper is overlayed for the texture and in the second image the bodies seem different sizes in the different ghosts of the that one cannot have been done entirely in the camera..unless the image was duped into a new layer and masked/transformed to increase the size of the belly. Interesting work.
