Interview With the Red Wings Guy
When I went to the film school, I was taught that the main secret of any interview is just to let the interviewee talk.
With the star level of our our TV hosts, this rule is quiet often not being followed. But, overall it is true.
Let them talk. Help them talk. It is their story!
This is a story of this guy. He is a Red-Winged Blackbird and he really had to tell me alot.
Usually, these guys spot photographers really fast and fly away to a safe distance. No panic or super rush – just a graceful “leave me alone” fly.
This one just let it go. For twenty minutes, he told me all he thought about me and my camera. And I just quietly “recorded” his monologue”.
I really like the red-winged blackbirds. Look at their red and yellow and white epaulets! Just gorgeous!
