Default Snatch help - staying back & keeping bar close

Here are a few videos from someone going back to basics and hoping to unlearn some bad habits. I've never been coached but recently have been videoing myself for the first time and found some pretty ugly things, especially an inability to get the bar to my hips and keep it close through the second pull and into the turnover. First, a snatch at 135#, which at this point is close to a max for me. Full speed, then slo mo and frame by frame.

Obviously I rolled forward a bit on the catch but managed to save it.

This one at 115 looks a bit better but the bar still gets way out in front (again, full speed, then slo mo and frame by frame).

Some mid-hang power snatches with just the bar.

Are we seeing a pattern here? Thanks for the help.
