In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at portraits of four women who murdered, a Watershot Kickstarter campaign, a photo of the iceberg that sank the Titanic and tips on taking Halloween photos.

  • In Photos: Four women convicted of murder begin to move on after prison, Corinne Segal details an ongoing photography project by Sara Bennett, a former attorney documenting the stories of four convicted murderers working to rebuild their lives. "People are more than their worst act," Segal writes. The piece includes 17 black-and-white photos from the project.
  • Watershot Inc. has launched a Kickstarter campaign for a Watershot Pro to fit the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus. It would be their seventh underwater housing for the iPhone.
  • A photo, reproduced on the History Blog, of the Titanic iceberg (or one of them), was sold at auction Saturday for £21,000. It was taken the morning of April 15, 1912, a day after the Titanic sank, by M. Linoenewald, chief steward of the German liner Prinz Adalbert. He noticed red paint on it.
  • The New York Institute of Photography has posted How to Take Great Halloween Photos just in the nick of time. You'd better consult it if you plan to use flash that night or don't know how many candles to put in your jack-o-lantern. It will help.
