Default Deadlifts for short people....Questions

Ok, I have short legs 30" inseam and relatively long arms for my height of5'9".
When I dead lift it seems as if I may not be bending my knees enough. My deadlifts almost resemble SLDL's.

I do not have to bend very far forward to get the bar to my shins.

So, is this an issue I should be concerned with? Does it make the lift less effective? Any recomendations?
