Who is Ivar Boson?

As you might have figured out, this is my photoblog, and I am Ivar Boson. Currently I'm studying Interaction Design at Malmö Högskola in Sweden, which I'm very happy with. I live in Central Malmö, in a neighbourhood which supposedly is the most dangerous in Sweden. I'm 23 years old and have photographed for about 6 years. The biggest change for me as a photographer was when I got my Nikon D70 as an early 20 years birthday present from my parents (6 months before i actually turned 20). Since then I've taken about 80,000 photos and the camera is getting a bit tired, but still works okay... But, I have now just recently gotten myself a Nikon D300 which of course is a big improvement, and I find it to be an amazing camera. So the D70 won't be used very much from now on, though it's a very nice backup camera if anything should happen, or if I need to have two lenses ready at all times.


Nikon D300, Nikon D70, Nikkor 18-70mm AFS G ED, Nikkor 18-200mm AFS G ED VR, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 AF-D, Sigma 12-24mm EX DG, Nikon SB800 Flash. I process my pictures in Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop CS3 and Photomatix Pro on a MacBook Pro (3d gen) with 4GB of RAM.
