|With the camera on a tripod I selected a shutter speed of 1/20 second and had the man move forward at a brisk pace. The non-moving camera caused the background to be sharp, while the slow shutter speed blurred the man.|

These shots were created in my daylight studio using two different techniques to cause a blur. In one the man is blurred; in the other the background is blurred. My daylight studio is very bright so I used a variable neutral density filter to dial the darkness of the scene to a point where I could use a shutter speed of 1/20 second to give me just the right amount of blurring.
