This topic should probably be moved to the Tips & Techniques subforum as it's not really specific to Nikon.

When doing an image tag with BBcode, you need to link directly to the image file - a link to the gallery or image placeholder won't work when placed in the tag. I've taken the liberty to do it for you.

Gordon did a video tutorial for this exact effect. Why not take a look?

As Rorschach mentioned, Gordon did a video relating on how to achieve this effect. It's not really Nikon specific, all you really need to do is get a slower shutter speed (preferably 1/30 or slower) and while the subject is moving, follow them with the camera.

To set a slower shutter speed, turn the camera to the S mode on your mode dial (located between the A and P modes) and rotate the thumb wheel on the back of the camera until the shutter speed is marked in the viewfinder or on one of the displays as "30", meaning 1/30 of a second. After that, just hold down the shutter button while following the moving subject.
