I have a picture, and I want to mask out the part I want, but instead of moving the mask, how can I reposition my picture within the mask.

In other words, I want the mask to lock in a certain location and not wanting to move it but re-position the picture to the area of the mask?

Are you animating the mask movement? Then create Mask path keyframes.

If you're NOT animating the mask movement, use the Pan Behind tool.

In addition to Dave's advice, you might try a track matte [link].
