    Bar path isn't straight. You're keeping your head in the way.

    Foot positioning is awkward on the unrack. As noted above, you want to go up vertically, not with a curve away from your face.

    Looks a little funny. Try holding the bar really low in your palms so your wrists can be straight. A narrower grip will allow your elbows to be more forward so you don't have to move your face out of the way the bar will go around your head naturally. Don't bring the bar under your chin. The bar path should go from in front of your upper chest to over your head.

    Looks like you're hunched over the bar, and looks like you keep your center of gravity by leaning back from your hips. Push your chest up into the bar, tighten your upper back and tighten your lats. Squeeze your glutes and quads. OHP is a shoulder movement but your whole body needs to be engaged.

    You're bringing the bar in front of you and then out to avoid your chin. The bar should go straight up and down. Hard to see where you're putting your hands but the angle makes it seem like you're too far out. I do thumb length from the inner knurl. On your unrack grab the bar tight and twist your arms in to engage your lats then keep that position through the lift. You're aiming to create a shelf with your upper back and lats to press from. So grab the bar tight and twist to engage your lats, take a deep breath and contract your abs hard then unrack the weight, take two steps back and press. The unrack is the most important part of standing OHP imo.

    With a standing press, you move your body around the bar instead of moving the bar out in front of your head. You keep your glutes and abs tight and look at a spot on the wall that's up and forward. Then you move at the hips and not the lower-back, so that your head ends up moving back out of the way of the bar as it moves straight up. Then once the bar gets over your head, you push your upper-body forward so that your head and shoulders are under the bar again. Again, you do this while keeping your glutes and abs tight and moving at the hips. Never move from the lower-back.

    I know that I never really got it right until I learned to look up as well as forward.

    It's better, but there are still 2 issues I see:

    You unrack holding the bar an inch or so out in front of you. You can see the space there as you walk backwards. Stay close to the bar from the unrack, through every rep, and until you rerack it. Maybe try racking one notch lower and squat the bar up.

    On the way up, you're still pushing the bar forward and around your head. Coming down, you move correctly, but you need to fix the movement going up.
