the wandering valence electron

When communicating with ASL, I know how far/close you hold your hands to your body denotes tense. But what about which direction you do actions in, or which hand is dominant?

Whenever I learn a new sign, I tend to do it as a mirror image of the teacher - and therefore, with the opposite hands doing the actions. Like with abandon: I tend to throw towards the right instead of the left. Will this have any affect on how the sign is interpreted?
