Many would have been wondering what is strobist. Well strobist is actually a blog name.
wiki explained strobist as :
David Hobby (born January 30, 1965) is an American photographer and author of the Strobist.com lighting blog, a site which promotes lighting techniques — such as off-camera flash — among photographic enthusiasts, often with an emphasis on the practical knowledge rather than the gear.

another shot at different angle.
last but not least
p/s : i have no idea but the picture look more underexposed when viewing in windows.
