Ken is the island handyman. Well, maybe not THE island handyman but let's just say everyone knows Big Red, his GMC work truck. I wanted to photograph him tuning his homemade two-string garbage can bass which he does with a wrench but he insisted I shoot his real wooden instrument. I shot both and he was right, this one was best. We used the skylight in his wife's studio and it was perfect. I particularly like the shadow his left pinky casts on the face of the bass.
