If you were one of the people who jumped into digital photography early on then you may be stuck with a few old cameras lying around. Your 5MP point-and-shoot may have been impressive back in the day, but now it’s just sitting around collecting dust, so why not have some fun with it?
Photographer Laura Merz has a clever way to get some use out of that old camera. Gut the camera, remove the lens, add a small light and voila – you’ve got yourself a digital camera nightlight. Laura warns that you’ll want to be careful when disassembling so you don’t crack the exterior case and also because you’ll find more than a few sharp pieces inside.
