Objects for scale

(1/3) > >>

Joe Duxbury:
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.

A ruler.

why not buy inexpensive measure strip as used in archaeology.

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.
