The pic that D3v1L80Y posted and I think you were asking about has more of a motion blur behind it not a focal length blur.... The only way I know of to get a "motion blur" effect behind the subject is to use a slower shutter speed or longer exposure time (around 1/60 - 1/15) And have both you and the subject move together at the same speed through the location. By keeping the individual in the same part of the picture and moving through the room the subject will remain fairly sharp while the background will have the motion effect. You can also try rotating around the subject quickly while they continue to stay turned toward you... These can be really tough techniques to master... but as D3v1L80Y showed us it can have awesome looking effects... even by accident

That being said if someone knows an easier way please tell... this method is really a pain.
