Default HS20EXR - What type of settings/modes needed for these pics?

I have absolutely no idea how to take these pics? Anyone have any guidance on how to take a pic like this? (What settings, modes, equipment needed?)

I am sure that each pic deserves its own settings, but I would love to be able to take pics like these.

Pic #1


and this:

Pic #2

#1 Looks like a multiple exposure image. Can't help you on this one as I have yet to try something like it.

#2 is an easy one. Use a slower shutter speed, focus on the the subject, click.

I am looking for something like Pic #1, above. I just don't know what settings, or accessories, are needed to accomplish the picture. Any guidance is appreciated.

Pic no.2 is using a slowish shutter speed focussing on a standing subject most probably with a tripod. It needs to be fast enough to stop the subject blurring but slow enough to get the blur of the train so im guessing from 1/30th downwards. I might be wrong, its been a while since Ive had a decent camera with decent manual controls.

The top one is Photoshopped. It is heavily edited. It hasn't been done in a dark room and has not been done with same image exposures. It has most proably been done, again, by using tripod, getting the model to run by and using a rapid burst mode, capturing the model at the six (is it 6? or more) stages (i cant see the image when in reply mode). Then, they have been all been layered on top of each other in photoshop using the transparency layers, with the ghost images of a higher transparency. I cant recall the proper names of the layers, as again, it has been a while since I have used them sadly. A lot more editing has been done but I hope you get the general idea.

btw the tripod would be paramount in the top picture.

so top one would be the burst, or multiple shot mode, and the train one would be down to your experimenation in "S" or shutter speed priority mode.

On The Fuji HS10 use the Multi Motion capture mode to make pictures like #1. I have never used that mode myself
