Honestly I think everyone here would like this....
I’m a photojournalist and have been busy documenting Pinball. I don’t think anyone is doing this kind of work, on this level in anything close to this style.
Action shots. Avant-garde stuff.
It isn’t easy, trust me, if the machines themselves aren’t your primary focus.
On Instagram at pinball.by.xtn
On Facebook at PINBALLBYXTN
I’m editing it all into a tangible large-format book. Hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars have gone into this. It’s not a money-making endeavor, just a labor of love.
After all, I’m a decent player.
Content-wise, I try to capture the experience and mood of pinball in the now. There’s a balance between action shots (the literal) and the ones that are meant to evoke the experience through unconventional, yet very intentional techniques.
Mostly shot in NYC, there is some Pinburgh, West Coast and LOTS of Europe.
Nothing is for sale. Tag yourself if you want. No pressure to follow me, but if you like an image, that means a flickton, so mark it so.
Looking for title suggestions.
Most images are deleted from Instagram after a few weeks but are typically replaced with something else. To keep things fresh.
Unfortunately the plans for shooting more content this Spring have been cancelled. This gives me the opportunity to finalize what I have so far (editing thousands of frames) but will not have the content I wanted to balance it all. Thus, there may be a Volume Two down the line.
Feedback, dislikes, rants and MOST IMPORTANTLY suggestions are encouraged. DM me.
I shoot using the Fujifilm X series. The X-Pro2 and X-T3 with prime lenses from 14mm to 90mm
Also looking for spare Shaq Attaq parts as well as high def flatbed scans of the upper playfield.
And it’s totally cool if you don’t like it and feel like verbalizing it.
