comment How can I amplify the light from a tiny white LED through a keyhole?
Second paragraph is the best part of the answer -- I'd put that first.

comment Why don't manufacturers include shutter count in the camera menus?
Odometers are required by law. Shutter counters aren't.

comment Would a TTL flash have advantages over a manual flash for my scenarios?
@laurencemadill Canon has a very similar system, letting you use E-TTL II with optically triggered Canon Speedlites. Note that in both cases there's a lot more going on than a simple fire when you see a flash optical trigger -- there's a series of pre-flashes that transmit the necessary information to the remotes.

comment Would a TTL flash have advantages over a manual flash for my scenarios?
@user1899082 In addition to the linked tutorial explicitly showing how to set up the on-camera flash to control two groups of remote flashes with TTL, there's also a lot of evidence in the manual for the D810. Check page 430, for example, which has a matrix that shows that the SB-910 can use TTL while being controlled via Advanced Wireless Lighting. See also the section on Commander Mode starting on page 334.

comment Lenses round ..Photographs square shaped why?
@OlinLathrop Of course, and the same logic applies to film or glass plates. I've broadened the point above, but I expect it was pretty clear anyway.

comment How can I get my camera to focus on water dropping?
Your lens surely has distance marks on it that will show you the distance at which the lens is focussed. Turn the ring to the minimum focus distance -- the mark will tell you how far you need to be from the subject.

comment How can I get my camera to focus on water dropping?
An unsharpened pencil is flat on the end, so you can stand it up on a flat surface. Or tape it to an object that will stand by itself, like a small drinking glass. Or sharpen it and jam the point into a rubber eraser, ball of clay, blueberry muffin... This is not a difficult problem to solve.

comment How to nail focus for DSLR astrophotography?
Just to state the obvious, photographing the sun without an appropriate filter is a very poor plan.
