I then put my camera between the laser level and the artwork I adjust the camera height and position so that the laser level's "plus" sign is on the back of the camera, just behind the center of the lens.

If I do this correctly, the camera is centered on the artwork, and perpendicular to it.

Interesting trick, but how does this method confirm the camera is parallel to the artwork? The projected crosshairs from the level would seem to only confirm the camera is in the middle of the level's projection but not necessarily parallel to the wall.
