Another one...called dragging the shutter.

The background is lit using continuous lighting, i.e. tungsten.  The light is flagged so none or very little of it falls on the subject, so the background is lit & the subject is dark.

The exposure is set for the background using a slow shutter speed.

The subject is then lit using flash.

Moving the camera blurs the background partially into the subject, but the subject, being lit by a short flash, is kept sharp, as below...
