Move your portafilter around while dosing so you end up with more coffee around the perimeter of the basket and no hump in the middle. Then just tamp. That is the easy way to do it. I will also turn my hand upside down, knuckles down, so my finger naturally bows down and just the portafilter a twist while my finger sits low in the bask if I think I need more distribution work.
