There are different ways of doing it. Some of it is going to depend on your body proportions and mechanics or personal preference.

Personally, I keep the bar centered over my feet, feet about 8-10 inches apart, toes pointed out about 45 degrees, take a few deep breaths (visualizing my pull), clear my mind, thendip, grip it, and rip it quickly while pushing with my heels and getting my hips down to my ideal pulling position.

Here is my 578 deadlift from the October PL meet:
