UPDATE, MAY 2024: When I wrapped up Strobist in 2021, I promised to check back in whenever I had something worth sharing. Today, I’m announcing my new book, The Traveling Photographer’s Manifesto, which seeks to be for traveling photographers what Strobist always aspired to be for lighting photographers. If that's you, I hope you'll enjoy it. -DH
