Not everyone is like Tmac in his prime....

Personally, I think you just need to speed up a little bit more at the beginning, as it seems to take an age for you to go from catching the ball to releasing the ball at your highest point...

Take care not to ruin your form....

Over the years, I've discovered that after playing 15 years, my shot has automatically become a lot faster and smoother, compared to even 5 years ago. Just because I've practices shooting for so long...

So just keep on shooting!! And then shoot some more...

Listen to this guy. Your shot isn't bad, you just need to be more confident in it and all the motions you're going through. Eventually, it will become faster and smoother which will decrease your need to elevate higher. Most of the NBA's best 3 point shooters don't even elevate much on their shot, but they do have quick releases to make up for it.
