Photographer's Note:
You may notice I didn't move around that much, the spot I took these photos are pretty much the same. This is because the lighting was quite harsh, there were like four bright white spotlights aimed directly at the photo pit.  This made trying to achieve focus lock difficult.  That's why I stayed at one spot trying to position her so that her head covered one of the spotlight, this way I could balance exposure (sort of) of her face and the backlight, and it created some nice effects too!
