Here are a few more photos by Santiago Ciuffo from Argentina. Such a talented photographer. For those not aware: Santiago Ciuffo published a hardcover coffee table photo book called Pinball. It has 208 pages and is still available: www.pinball-magazine.com/shop/

What kind of treats are you guys giving your pinballs to keep them still during the photo sessions? Every time I try to get a pic with the ball next to anything it just rolls away and wont listen to me when I say STAY!
But seriously, are these high speed cameras or are you just putting a magnet under the playfield or something?
Most photos are staged with something stuck under the ball to keep it in place, like a little shim.
Great topic just went through it all.....
I have so many pics I love of my restores and machines I own and have owned I don't know where to start but here are some of my favourites !
Someone asked my by PM how I take my overhead wide angle shots. I shot them with a Canon Rebel T3 using an 8mm f/4.0 fish-eye lens. I set my shutter speed slow, with a very low ISO level to compensate for a longer shutter speed. This lets me capture all the lights in a cycle in the on position. I use the test mode with all lights+flashers and time my snapshot just a split second before the come on again. I use an overhead jig to hold the camera in place facing down, and fire it off remotely using my PC.
I use Lightroom for post RAW editing, then finish them off in Paint Shop Pro (Poor mans Photoshop)
Hope these tips help. Love everyone else's work!
Here's an example using Monster Bash and HSII

Are there other playfields used more than this one? IPDB says;
Playfield was produced by Gottlieb as a 1 player replay version called 'El Dorado', an Add-A-Ball version called 'Gold Strike', an Add-A-Ball version for Italy called 'Lucky Strike', a 4 player replay called 'Target Alpha', a 4 player replay game made only for France called 'Canada Dry', and a 2 player replay called 'Solar City'.
Also later produced as Premier's 1984 4 player 'El Dorado City of Gold'.
