photography tip 01: Flip your photo

Flipping your photo horizontally when working on the post processing phase of a photo allows your eye to constantly seek and spot the best framing possible, as well as remove anything that might alter the composition. It's a technique i use a LOT whenever i work on a concept art piece in photoshop too. to the point where i took the habit of flipping my canvas every 40 seconds or so. It's a bit like giving your eyes a fresh start on your image, every several seconds. the best way is to bind a key or create a shortcut in order to have a permanent easy access to the horizontal flip. i actually use the vertical one too!
