4 Inch Height Difference - 5ft 8 vs 6ft

Height Differences in photos can sometimes appear bigger or smaller due to numerous factors.

For instance in this photograph below, taken on a flat solid tiled floor, this represents a real 4-inch height difference.

Example of 4 inch Height difference
5ft 8 Rob vs 6ft Jenny (wearing heels)

In the example above, a couple of factors are at play which might make you think the difference is a bit more than 4 inches.

Firstly, the camera is a bit below my eyes, so even though I'm standing side by side with Jenny, the top of my hair will appear a fraction lower in the photograph than it would have done, were the camera placed at the same height as my hair.

The second factor is that Jenny possesses a smaller head than myself - nearly 3cm - so if you are comparing height based on eyelevels or chin level, this might fool you into thinking the difference is more than 4 inches. My eyes are at the end of her chin, which would normally be indicative of a 5 inch difference. Hair can also add a contributing factor, although in this case Jenny's hairstyle isn't particularly thicker than mine.

Here are the actual measurements before this photo was taken of Jenny in heels and myself barefoot.
