in thread The best object to provide scale on a photo showing a small object is:

Regarding CDs/DVDs/BDs, I think there is still the issue of potentially being too big,

I'd just place the object near (or in) the central hole and macro focus in on the hole and object.

Chose the right angle and you can have whatever seems relevant reflected in the CD as a background; or simply isolate the object using depth of field.

    I wasn't really thinking of using photographic artistic tricks like that! Interesting. Could definitely work. Almost makes me want to setup a test render!

      I just did. Albeit a rushed and crude version of what I was envisaging.

      The housebrick-sized, 3kg lump of scrap in the background at the top of the image could store 400MB. Huge in it's day.

      The DVD in the lower foreground can hold 4.7GB.

      The keyfob atop the DVD, the working components of which would easily fit within the central hole of the DVD, has 10 times the capacity and costs 100th the original price of the disk drive.
