Photos of sail shape

So, I was looking at a video on youtube about sail shape:



I was wondering if a sail maker can really make judgements about things like depth of draft from a photograph. It seems to me that there could be distortions depending on the camera (on the focal length of the lens). Are photos a good tool for this?
