This is great!

I used to teach kids shooting techniques in a former job, and we'd always say regarding the follow-through, "pretend you're trying to quickly steal a cookie out of the cookie jar on top of the fridge: flip the wrist and reach in with your fingers!"

Just a tip: The 3rd photo in step 3 would make an excellent main photo for your intro!
