    it is good to use a monopod for panning shots so that it is more stable.

    You are asking for Panning effect.

    Here are the basic setting, use this as your baseline:

    Handle: Nikon D5000
    WB: Auto or Ambient
    ISO: 200
    Dial: AV
    1/30 sec at f/20
    focal Length: 24mm
    Flash: none
    Metering: Weighted Average

    Try to practice first by yourself.
    Use your palm as panning.

    Stretch your Left hands with open palm,
    open your palm and face towards you.
    point your camera to your palm, then, swing your arms to right direction.
    be carefull, ensure you're in open area to avoid hitting other or hurting your self.
    then shoot. you will see, panning effect of your palm.

    this will take a lot of trial shots.

    enjoy shooting.

    regards, adobo
    The problem the TS will have with your suggestion is:
    1. Using Av, while he can set it at f20, the shutter speed will vary depending on the available light. (EDIT: unless your Av is not the Canon Av....)
    2. The panning effect depends on the shutter speed, so having control over shutter is preferred over aperture. In this, Tv may be better.
    3. ISO also depends on available light. If in doubt, Auto may be better.

    Panning can be fun and can result in some very amazing shots. Have fun with it

    Don't worry about it. As an amendment, I would NOT suggest keeping your arms stretched and swinging them around as he suggests. Keep your camera tucked to your body, just like when you're taking a normal picture. Rotate from your hips. This way, you have a more stable fulcrum and far less chance of injuring others around you. Use shutter speed priority, set it for 1/15 to 1/125s depending on what you are shooting - I used 1/125s for F1 cars, but a jogger/runner can use a slower speed. Depending on available light, let your ISO and Aperture auto-adjust.
