Looks like mixing strobe with constant light. The strobe on the subject freezes them, and then you use a longer shutter speed with the constant light. That's you get the motion. Also the constant light is gelled to get the color.

I am guessing a green laser or something like that was used to "paint" in the effect.

Yep, long shuter, some constant light and a strobe. and then add some movement in the mix, can be either the model or the camera.

I did this in camera recently. But I spoke with a stylist and designer the other day who achieved much better results ding it in PS. can't remember how she said she did it though, apparently it's pretty simple. will have another go at it soon.

Indeed, all done in camera, the technique is called "Rear Curtain Sync"

"Rear Curtain Sync" has nothing to do with it it. Rear Curtain Sync simply makes the flash go off at the end of the exposure as opposed to the start.

The effect of it is only visible in longer exposures when blur is introduced, and then only affects the "direction" of the blur.

Rear curtain sync has everything to do with it, in this shot, the photographer is using rear curtain sync to create this effect with a strobe and a hot light with a green gel using the camera handheld. The falloff is wrong to be front curtain sync.

While technically rear curtain sync only refers to when the strobe fires, as you point out, the technique is primarily used in this type of effect, I was merely trying to provide the OP with a search term he could use to learn more about creating this type of effect.

Thats interesting.
What do you mean by falloff? How would it differ without rear curtain sync?

Surely the circular green light patterns would be the same ( as the direction of the movement would not have any impact on the effect ).

You can do this allin camera. I've not done it but I spoke to a guy who did asking him the same thing, thinking it was rear curtain sync.

Slower shutter speeds and he actually moves the camera as he shoots, probably a lot of trail and error too
