Extended blurred motion techniques

Panning - An extension of the slow shutter technique involves the photographer moving with the motion of the subject. The aim is for the photographer to keep the subject in the frame during the exposure. When this technique is coupled with a slow shutter speed it's possible to produce photographs that have sharp subjects and blurred backgrounds. Try starting with speeds of 1/30th sec.

Flash blur - To achieve this effect you need to set your camera on a slower than normal sync shutter speed. The short flash duration will freeze part of the action and the long shutter will provide a sense of motion. The results combine stillness and movement.
