A Hat for Every Lady and Camera Curiosities

I have a lovely collection of hats from the 1940s to 1970s coming to the shop this week after an amazing buying trip! Which is your favorite?
On a somewhat unrelated note, I was surprised to see how each hat effected the color balance of my camera. I didn't edit anything about these photos, aside from cropping, and the differences are quite substantial! This photo set was taken over a one hour period with natural light with a Canon PowerShot ELPH 115 IS.

I decided to do some test shots of jumping as an experiment to determine if I can use action shots for listings in my Etsy shop. Holy moly! This was so much more difficult (and tiring) than I anticipated. 

Like so many things, I just jumped right in without researching the best way to go about this with my particular camera. The results were too ridiculous not to share.

I used a Canon PowerShot ELPH 115 IS with the timer set to ten shots and the flash on auto. To create a stop motion effect (ish) edited the snaps together using Windows Movie Maker with each frame set to .25 seconds and added a royalty free MP3 Tennessee Hayride by Jason Shaw.
Fails these shots may be, but I am determined to figure out how to get a clear jump shot with my camera! Fingers crossed!
These were the best (or worst?) of the bunch:
