Try to get up on your traps and squeeze your shoulder blades together to decrease ROM. When you bring the bar down, engage your lats. Widen your legs and get your feet back. When you press, drive your heels to the floor. BTB is right on. Your grip is WAY to close. That's closer than I even do close grips. Also, before you take the weight, squeeze the bar like you're trying to put dents in it. If you are tight all over, it prevents the "oh shit" factor of feeling heavy weight.
