do you lower your right shoulder on a 2 handed backhand to allow the left hand to do its thing? or is it just pointing the shoulder towards the ball? or neither?

depends on the height and pace of the bounce. but yeah, usually i lower the shoulder a bit, while at the same time pointing it towards the ball.

That was one of my pictures. I didn't wanna show my whole body though. Just showing that shoulder drop thing.

focus on getting your shoulders at least sideways instead of the height of each shoulder... the latter is not really something you should think about when hitting / there are other more important mechanics to focus on.
