hey all, first post here.
About this type of picture. You may have seen many images like this or taken at night where you have motion trails from bright objects all over the background but your subject is well lit and not blurred at all. WELL
Most SLR's and prosumer cameras have a function called rear-sync for the flash, what happens is the shutter will open for say 1 second, on a small aperture such as f8 - f11 this will allow things like car tail-lights and reflections to make a trail on your image, then right at the last 1/4 of the second (assuming the flash sync ins 1/250) the flash will fire and your image will be completed with an illuminated subject
hope this helps
