Default using image plane to model environment

I have two computers and usually eyeball all the pieces in my model from a pic of the environment on one screen. I saw a tutorial where a guy used the perspective view and modeled it all in the perspective view. He lined up and modeled out everything making the model this way. Is this easier.

Ok I'll elaborate a bit on that.

Yes its easier to model with a reference in your scene rarther than on another PC etc as you can directly relate to it for positioning/scaling and rotations.
