I don't 'lift up' my body at all on follow through and have no trouble lifting the puck to head height if I want to do so. The mechanics of my shot stays the same every time; the only thing I change is the angle of my release.

Keep it simple and smooth, make sure you get your weight shift completed BEFORE impact and swing around a firm front leg. Too often I see beginners actually shifting their weight AS they're swinging through the puck, rather than completing the shift first, and as a result then never get a firm front side around which to swing. You can't generate power and an accurate shot when you're skating through it.
