Maybe. I'm not quire sure. I do know there is the Darklight ritual which serves that exact purpose. Anyway there is always a little give and take. If you want to see then you gotta be willing to risk getting seen yourself. Anyway your character already has low-light vision. Consider yourself lucky on that I usually take away that. I seriously want to kill whoever's bright idea it was to give all the races different senses which just mean countless busywork for the DM to figure out who can see what and in what conditions all the time. It's annoying as hell!
Me: "Okay group, you all find yourselves in a dark room, only lit up by your torch and-"
Player 1: "Hey, I got low light vision, what do I see?"
Me: "You do? Damn, it." *looks through rulebook to see how much further ahead he can see.*
Player 2: "Also my character has darkvision, so I should be able to see everything right?"
Me: *Breaks down into a fit of unintelligible rage*
And don't get me started on trying to get through an encounter like that.
Fury towards a game mechanic/racial feature aside, my views of prestidigitation is that it should have its name changed to something easier to spell and pronounce. As for its usage, there is already a list of exactly what you can do with it so you're going to have to explain what you mean by "clever usage".
