Objects for scale
(1/3) > >>
What do you cave photographers like to use to give a close-up shot some scale? A karabiner? An AA battery? Is there consensus as to what looks best?
Don't know about photographs, but for surveys, if your discovery is sufficiently impressive, then to scale 747 jumbo jet outlines are a popular choice.
why not buy inexpensive measure strip as used in archaeology. https://www.geologysuperstore.com/product/field-scale-card/
We generally use whatever is available, which is either a full size human being if it's a large object, or a hand / finger if it's smaller. It's definitely not photogenic!, but it is a good record.
