In a nut shell, a creative collaboration between the photographer and the sitter

Quite possibly though, given the sitter's circumstance I don't think that she would have been all that interested in anything other than the immediate needs of her children.
I don`t know, I have a fascination for the old style Alphonse Bertillon police mugshots, sure the sitter was hardly ever willing, but even so there is still a collaboration of sorts going on between the two, generating interesting portraits.
Mention portraits and immediately the word 'studio' springs up......no reason that it should.

I think the association with studios comes from the term, 'sitting for a portrait'.
Would it be fair to say that in the UK, over the last 50years, that generally speaking, portraits have traditionally been taken in studio, and in a formal way?
My actual knowledge about this is limited, hence the question.
I think portraiture has always been studio based or location based.
My great grandfather was a street photographer in and around London, today the word street photographer has a totally different meaning.
I was looking at a site the other day that was showing hundreds of American civil war portraits, the vast majority were standing
Care to elaborate Paul, on your the kind of street photography your great grandfather was doing - in contrast with the street photography of today?
He was a portrait photographer, a lot of his stuff included taking random street portraits, usually at popular tourist locations, you don`t see these any more.
These days street shooters call them selves street photographers but really there nothing of the sort, in fact many would tell you a street portrait is not even street photography.
where does strobist fit ?
kinda like studio lighting
Except you might be balancing ambient with flash rather than relying purely on flash.
It all adds up to more portrait possibilities.

Same place as everything else, strobist lighting is used both inside and outside, it might be a new word, but its not a new technique, it has been around since the days of flash powder.
studio = portrait
outside = lifestyle
strobist = ?
A portraits a portrait
Strobist, its just a new fangled word for an old technique.
apparently not.... cause if you do it outside, it's lifestyle?
