Key to any good handstand-anything is hips in line with shoulders and your shoulders must be activated!

The top photo shows this in each type of handstand option including a typical handstand against the wall, toes on a box, or L-Sit EB press! 

The bottom photo shows elbow position in each of those handstands at the bottom or beginning of a push-up. Notice that the elbows are always in front of the body! If you elbows go out to the side, you're using only your deltoids to press instead of your whole shoulder!
