Photo-Shoot: Phantom of the Opera Circus

As any photographer knows, a simple concept in your mind can explode and turn into something completely different once you get to shooting it. While I was shooting for the last post I was playing around with shadows and after I wrapped up the lighting tutorial I decided to have some fun with an old phantom of the Opera mask I had laying around. I started with this:

Sort of a modern Phantom of the Opera with a pretty girl. She had brought along a few different outfits and before I knew it, the photos turned into this:
