As an advanced hobbyist of photography, this one is particularly easy to replicate.
If I was briefed with creating something like this, I'd simply set up my camera on a tripod at the bottom of the stairs, set the exposure to around
10-15 seconds (depending on amount of light, if too much I'd use an neutral density filter to block out the light) and then I'd simply dance up and
down three or four stairs which would create this ghosted effect.
Oh, I almost forgot... The creator was obviously wearing some bright colours that day so converted the picture to black and white for

Exactly! You're absolutely right and I just succeed duplicate the same effect with my own camera.
I asked my young boy to 'dancing' up and down one stair during the whole exposure time.
The legs are more visible here, due to the fact that he was wearing a black pant, that contrast with the white stairs.
- Canon Powershoot A720 IS mounted on a tripod
- ISO 400
- Exposure time 10"
- F 8.0
- Flash off
- No ambient light
- Taken in B&W mode
Not a perfect duplication, okay, but I can try to improve this test, with my boy wearing white pant and shirt and shoot a few more meters away.
Edit to add: the original picture came from the ASUP site
and is a 2112*1584 picture.
Examination of the EXIFs datas don't shows anything of interest, and especially what was the exposure time.
