What is an “Ice Light?”

When Westcott sent me an Ice Light to try, my husband saw it and immediately asked “why are you holding a Lightsaber?” And yes, I suppose it does resemble one.  But the truth is that this oddly shaped light is lightweight, transportable, and meant for photographers, not Star Wars fans.

You can adjust the brightness and it’s daylight balanced.  It attaches to light stands or you can simply hold it. Jerry Ghionis designed this light for Westcott, as a portable, rechargeable, continuous lighting source.  And it is just that.

My Initial Impressions

Fun, lightweight, and the quality of light is very nice.  I am 99.9% a natural light shooter – and I add light using our Photoshop actions or Lightroom presets as needed.  Many years ago, I used strobes when I had a product photography business, but since 2006 MCP Actions is my full time job. Photographing my kids, nature and wildlife, is more for pleasure than pay. In fact I no longer have strobes – just a few speed lights and reflectors.  So for me, I am interested in the Ice Light as a quickly accessible tool that does not take up much space in my office or home, and something I can pop in my camera bag should the need arise.

I’ve only practiced with it a few times so far.  But I see it having a place in my photography, for the reasons noted above.  The major downside I see to buying one of these: price. It is expensive for a small, saber-like light.  And truthfully, when I used it, I wished I had a second one simultaneously.  If you are a professional and shooting models or high school seniors on location, these may be the ideal quick lighting source you need. If you have limited space and mostly shoot with natural light, but want a daylight balanced light source to add in, definitely consider these.  If you photograph young kids, it may be hard, as they will want to play with it.  They aren’t going to just let you use it – they’ll want your toy.

As I mentioned above, I definitely am not seasoned with the use of lights, but I’ve included a few of my daughter Jenna taken in near darkness in my home.  I wanted to see if it could help me in low-light indoor situations. And compared to not using any light at all, for my first try, I was pretty happy.  I just need more practice.

    I would love to use it on model photo shoots in dark places
    For example inside a barn, in the parking lot.
    The light usually is very harsh from my flash and I end
    Up adjusting it .

    Oh how I would love one of these Ice Lights. I never even knew they existed until a few weeks ago when I saw one in use on a webinar I was watching. Ever since I saw it I WANT it. I could think of many uses for it but for my own purposes I think I would use it mainly in portraiture. You can direct the light exactly where you need it and it seems so easy to use. Please may I have one :) Good luck to everyone and may the best man/woman win.

    Mallory Renee says:

    In my opinion, the Ice Light would work best for either weddings or newborn photography and here’s why. Both types of photography traditionally use natural light for a classic, marketable look. However, both types of photography also have limits that other types of photography don’t have.

    The limit on wedding photography is that you typically just have only the wedding day available to get all of your shooting done. What if it’s raining and you need to find a last-minute indoor location? What if the indoor location doesn’t have good window light? A lot can go wrong on the wedding day and you are usually limited to the wedding venue locations as well as restricted by the wedding day schedule. Having an Ice Light would dramatically increase your options. It’s like carrying a mini sun with you everywhere and you get to choose the direction of its light. Even if it’s raining cats and dogs, it doesn’t matter. You can go inside and make it look like it’s a perfectly sunny day.

    With newborn photography, you are limited to indoor locations. You are also limited because the baby cannot pose on its own, can’t move itself closer to the window, and might wake up while you’re trying to position him. With the Ice Light, you can bring the window light TO the baby and minimize movement.

    Other types of photography are easier, since you can reschedule sessions or ask your subjects to reposition themselves, etc. You have more control over the location and time of day.

    Anyway, that’s just my opinion as to what an Ice Light is best suited for. If I had one, I know my wedding photography would be changed as I could truly go to almost any location I wanted to (especially indoors) without being worried about where the sun is. I would be thrilled and honored to win one!

    This is an awesome giveaway! I would love to try it out!
    I could see using it in homes when the light is not acceptable, using it on backlit situations to open up the face with some light. I’m going to do a small school and I would love one to supplement natural light for that as well.

    Ashley says:

    I could use IceLight in wedding and senior shoots however, I can see this making a HUGE difference in newborn photography.

    I usually shoot newborns at my home studio because I have a great natural light source. I know that some new moms feel uncomfortable coming to a home studio and are always most comfortable in their own home. However, You can never count on a good light source (a big window) and you may end up shooting in what is equivalent to a cave.

    Using this light would open up an opportunity to shoot more newborns in the comfort of their home without lugging lights to a clients home.

    It also looks simple enough to use so that the parent can easily become my assistant by holding the light.

    Bravo Jerry!

    John B. says:

    While it’s definitely a useful tool for portrait photography, I can imagine it having applications in experimental art photography as well – light painted long exposure landscape shots come to mind immediately.

    You’d have to create a shielding for the side facing the camera, but the size and shape of the light would mean that one could illuminate large portions of an image with a few waves of your arm.

    I am an avid light hog! I use all sorts of strobes and speed lights to produce a unique image, especially with my senior and engagement sessions. I have been known to drag my poor light assistants into rivers, lakes, up into high perches, pretty much wherever I need them. I would love to try a lightweight continuous light source, and my assistants would gladly drop the large strobes and softboxes to use such a small device!

  91. 91

    Katie says:

    I often use an inexpensive video light for detail shots for weddings and events, but this! WOW I can’t even believe I didn’t know this existed. I initially thought how wonderful this would be for close-ups on people or props, but now I’m convinced after scrolling through the gallery this would solve my slave and strobe woes in dimly-lit receptions and mostly allow me to not be afraid of the dark–literally! Being a “natural light” lover is really limiting when you want to also be diverse in your style and when you have no other option. Thank you Jodi for all your posts!

    It would be a convenient and easy tool to put in my camera bag. I use a shop light right now that requires an electrical outlet, and I rarely get to use it because of that reason. I would love to use it for portrait and wedding photography, or an emergency in the dark that requires light. Thank you!

  147. 147

    I think that this IceLight would be perfect for indoor studio or on-location shoots dealing in portraits, newborns, glamour, etc., especially when it’s so easy to carry with you, when you don’t know what the lighting is like at clients’ locations!

    This would be amazing to have as a part of my gear, and would most certainly make all of my images just stand out from all the rest!

    I would give almost anything to win this!!!! :)

    Leigh W says:

    Sorry if this a repeat but I dont see it listed;

    Living on the east coast of Florida the sun is superbright, even in the late afternoon, and the ICE LIGHT would be just the perfect portable light source to add fill in backlit situations. It would also allow me to eek out a few extra frames as the sun is setting and I am losing all my ambient light.

    Hello!!! I think the Ice light would be most helpful in my boudoir sessions. See, I shoot mainly in hotel room and the hotel doesn’t let you check in until 3:00pm, which only gives me about an hour to shoot and no time for hair and makeup which also takes an hour. So the Ice Light would give me the option to shoot about 30mins in natural light then for a more dramatic look, the Ice Light would be perfect to use!

    I’m very curious to play with this one in location shoots. Urban jungle shoots, where it’s awkward to bring studio lights and where speedlites can be problematic if you want a large light source. Sounds like it’d be a lot of fun to work with.

    I think these lights are rather neat. They will let you bring lights to places like never before. I think they could be a great add to an outdoor photographers kit because of the portability. It may also work great for an on location portrait photographer. There are many possibilities that can be explored. I wonder if they could be used underwater in some sort of water proof tube.

Since I specialize in high school seniors, I see how this could add some edginess to their portraits! I mostly shoot outdoors and this could solve the great problem of having to carry around light stands, strobes, etc….Plus, I could look super cool…like Obi-Wan Kenobi or Luke Skywalker!!

    I think this would work wonders for wedding photography, during those situations where you need to quickly light an image but don’t have time to figure out your flash settings. I would LOVE to win one of these for the wedding I’m photographing in September!!

    We’ve rented Ice Lights in the past to help with portrait and bridal sessions and LOVED them. Would love to be able to use one all the time!

    What an incredible tool to have in my bag. I could imagine a multitude of uses for the Ice Light. From low light indoor on the run event photography, to special spot’s in studio, to experimental night shoots to innumerable “available” light shoots with emergency boosts required.
    For me, the sole drawback is the price-point. In as much, to win this in a prize would be the only way to attain such a great tool for a very long time to come.

    The ice light would be phenomenal in dramatic portraiture. Oh how I’d love to win this! I can imagine the hours spent playing with light to add emotion and depth in my upcoming teen portraits, capturing everything from the sweet fresh faces to the solemn teen angst. I have a father/baby shoot coming up that I have visions of dramatic lighting, and this light would be amazing for that! My current lighting setup leaves me rather uninspired and I find myself relying solely on natural light. Shine a light on me MCP, I could use some lighting inspiration! :)

    I photograph beach weddings and use OCF every time. I find myself wishing I had a smaller light for my assistant to just hold or a second light source. This would be perfect! I saw the announcement when it came out and loved the idea but, like you, the price is off-putting. I would love to get my hands on one of these and try it out, though.

    Thanks for the review, Jodi!

  361. 361
    Joe Justice says:

    I can see using this anywhere, but particularly on location shoots during the evening. Drag the shutter to expose for background sunsets or night lighting, use this to fill on the subject. BANG.

    This would probably save my marriage. My husband is my assistant and he is highly resistant to my ideas for lighting solutions. He tends to go for on camera speedlight. I go more for natural light. Yesterday we had an outdoor engagement shoot and it ended up pouring rain. We sucked it up and drove around to a variety of covered locations. As you can imagine, the natural light was sketchy at best. The Westcott Ice Light would soooo satisfy both of us and as I said, probably save our marriage.

    I think the Ice Light would be most useful in photo shoots that are on-location, when you don’t have your full studio and lighting equipment or you just want the flexibility of moving from one background to the next. It is portable and light and gives an additional lighting boost to any indoor or outdoor shoot. I think I would use the Ice Light most often in evening or low light situations. I think it would be a huge benefit to my photography and my clients!

Definitely great for those dark photos and when you want the catch lights in the eyes but don’t want to spend hours editing poor light sources!!!

    I think the Westcott Ice Light would be best suited for product or still life work…at least that’s how I’d use it. I think it could also be a great light-painting tool. I’m sure I’d also find other uses for the Ice Light that I have not though of yet.

    What a perfect tool the Ice Light would be to use during sessions with my growing list of female musician clients.

    Kashia Vice says:

    This would definitely be useful when doing indoor sessions. There is very little natural light in the indoor locations that I shoot in, so this would be perfect! I don’t have any ocf gear, so having something like this would really broaden my options in terms of being creative with lighting.

    Melissa says:

    I would love to try it for my family portrait. I did not seemed them for a long period of time. I want to take a nice picture of all together.

  512. 512

    I have wanted an ice light for some time now, but as you mentioned, it is pricey. I would use the ice light in low light situations where my ISO is 800 or higher, to give controlled directional light for shaping shadows. It would be so helpful in wedding portraits, senior portraits, or anywhere indoors (or in a car, an elevator, a phone booth like Jerry’s famous pix) where I needed portability for creating dramatic, artistic images. I am a huge fan of Jerry Ghionis and I study anything I can find on him on the web (hoping to join the ICE Society someday). The ice light allows him, and would allow me, to shape and control light like Cliff Mautner whose saying is “Shadow is my camera. Light is my paint.” The ice light should be a tool in every wedding and senior photographer’s tool bag. Thanks,Jodi for offering this contest. I’m crossing my fingers and toes and earlobes….

    This would be great for photo journalism. We tend to be natural light only…but there are times you want something more on the dark streets. Here is a shot from above Lewiston, Idaho at night. My videographer in the foreground could use a spot of light. I had no intention of shooting this…and flash is hard to meter for in a split second.

  516. 516
    claudia says:

    Wow, I’d not heard of this light before but there’s been many times this would have come in handy for my portrait photography! (Tight locations with poor lighting, or even to fill in shadows in harsh, contrasty lighting conditions!) I could even use this as a fill light when shooting architecture or products too. :)

  517. 517
    Tammy Noble says:

    This is excellent! I think this light is so versatile, it could be used in any number of photography sessions! At night, to illuminate silhouettes; spot highlighting… anywhere a lite, portable light can be thought of! I’d LOVE to win this!! Pinned & tweeted! ;)

  518. 518
    Erwin says:

    I would totally use this during one of our weddings where natural light is lacking… which seems to be always whenever we go into a bridal or groom prep room in a hotel. And of course add it to the repertoire during portrait time after the sun sets.

    Jodi, I’m mainly a natural light photographer of kids, families and high school seniors. I have been wanting one of these since I first saw Roberto Venezuela use one last year on Creative LIVE. I think it would be a terrific tool for on-location fill light.

    Teresa Woods says:

    My studio is very small and dark, and a majority of my subjects are kids. I have my main light, which is a 4’ octagon that takes up a lot of space in the corner of the room. The octagon stays in the corner regardless of what I’m photographing, and is used to fill the whole room full of light. For babies I use the octagon as fill, and an additional 2×3 soft box close to the baby as the main light. With limited space, this setup works pretty well. If I had the ice light I could replace the octagon, and free up a lot of space!

  537. 537
  538. 538

    I would use it for my wedding photography. It seems like it would be much easier than putting up a light stand, and it easier to use!

    RaeAnne S. Meaders says:

    So exciting you’re giving away an ICELIGHT!! I think it would be perfect for my portrait and bridal work, to add an artistic flare. I’ve also wanted to try an Ice Light in newborn photography because I haven’t found a light set-up I’m happy with yet, and I feel the Ice Light could give me the look I envision!

  546. 546

    I believe the Ice Light would be a great tool to have in making environmental portraits. Adding a light on top of ambient allows for a greater control of the exposure.

    I’ve seen the ICE light in action and it’s amazing! Phenomenal! Would love to have one (at least) as part of my arsenal… the images are stunning as result of a more controlled/softer light source (not to mention that in low light situations helps the camera focusing as well)

    The Ice Light would help me perfectly when I have to move my portable studio to a low light area, but do not have the space to set up a full studio with 4 lights and a hair light. From the examples, it looks compact as well as bright. It would be very convenient for me when moving(which I do a lot of outside photography and run into areas I can not set up a light for lack of power cords)

  578. 578

    Shared on facebook and tweeted :) I would love to use this outdoors to fill in shadows in the face or add a catch light in the eyes in shaded areas outdoors. Looks like it would be nice to have for detail shots in a dark room at weddings, like the cake and such :) I would LOVE to win and start playing with :)

    WOW..lovin the ICE light. I operate a small studio and it would be a very versatile addition to my lighting setup.

  585. 585

    I have added you on my facebook and facebook group

    The Ice Light would also as I said help me with travel. When I travel to locations(usually the woods or even an art like part), some of the best places are extremely dark. It would help if I can light the place by holding a light long enough to take a picture. Usually these areas have no power source and unfortunately my lights are power cord based. It would be perfectly convenient to have one with me.

  586. 586
    Nichole Jensen says:

    The ice light would be perfect for me to use with my moody lighting portraits I have been working on with my kids. I presently don’t have a great light source.

  587. 587
  588. 588

    to add a soft angle of light in portraits, its not as harsh as speedlights,
    & allows glass to be lit up without a blinding reflection .

    I have also shared your contest.

    The Ice Light is very light weight and since I am up and moving with my photography most of the time whether in a portable studio, a low light event, or to a darker area of the woods, it would be perfect to take with me. Instead of having to set up a stand and light for one shot they want in a small corner, I can pull out the ice light and take the shot. I currently go to school for photography and it would help me take amazing pieces in low light areas.

  591. 591

    This would be so wonderful for indoor shoots like infant & boudoir. However the first thing that comes to my mind is sunset shoots at the beach. I’m constant asked for this popular photo shoot location because I live in Hawaii. This would help me to capture all the beautiful colors from the sunsets but also have a better lighted subject.

    David Moriya says:

    it would be really helpful in lighting those dark times when you’re outside and you have only a few seconds to take the photo. Something like a night graduation. I’ve had so many problems lighting those and Flash bulbs are not my favorite when on the go and I have nothing to bounce it off of. Other than that, I love natural lighting and a reflector as a setup, but I can’t’ do that at night.

    Kimberly says:

    The Ice Light would be ideal for a small garage studio (like mine) and would provide an excellent alternative for large and cumbersome strobes. I currently have a very small studio space and I have to be very creative in finding a way to squeeze myself, a model, a backdrop, props, and my extra-large softbox/grid into this area. It’s also very inconvenient for me to lug my lighting equipment and find a power source for on-location shoots. For someone like me, with boundless vision but restricted space, the Ice Light would allow more freedom in studio and on-the-go.

    Living in Florida gives us the most horrible unexpected weather changes at the drop of a hat, so this would be something perfect to grab from my car when the clouds get too overwhelming!

    I need this light for wedding and portrait photography. It would create the right kind of soft light and, subsequently, shadows on faces. I like that I can hang it from a light stand and adjust the brightness. Plus, it would fit in my camera bag.

    sugar says:

    At first glance, I thought I’d want one for on-the-road food photos (in restaurants/bars) but after checking out the Amazon page for the light, I realized it’s much bigger than I thought – 24 in. So, given that, I would use it to create a little food photography studio in our living room (where there’s zero space) since it seems powerful enough that I could kill the regular lights (tungstens) and just use the Ice Light to light the food. I’m compelled to do a lot of my recipe photography at night (after work) and the lighting is so awful. I’ve thought about getting a studio light, but they’re so huge! This would be a great solution. Thanks for offering the giveaway!

    “In what type of photography do you think the Ice Light would be most useful and how could it help you get better images?”

    I’m certain the Ice Light would be perfect in a pinch for outdoor available light photography, with all manner of models. Having a daylight balanced (between 5200-5500 Kelvin) light source would certainly be useful in brightening the shadows during low-light shoots outdoors. The Ice Light would also find itself at home in a food bloggers photography arsenal, especially when it’s inconvenient to setup a full lighting rig with softboxes etc.

    In my case, this would be a great help for after work portrait and foodie shoots (I have a 9-5 day job) where most of the lighting available has that orange or yellow cast to it.

  753. 753

    I shoot boudoir and would LOVE an Ice Light! ;-) Thanks for always supplying the good giveaways Jodi!

  754. 754

    I love the ice light! I have one already and would love to have a second one. It is a very handy light to have when you don’t have enough light for indoor natural light studios or night shooting or even just to add some flair to a picture.

  755. 755
    Whitney says:

    This light is awesome! I would take it everywhere (weddings, on location shoots, headshots, commercial shoots, newborns, etc.) It would be awesome to use in addition to strobes just to add cool catch lights. It would definitely help in newborn portrait situations by preventing startling flashes of light and adding control and speed. I would name it, and hold it, and pet it!!!!!!!!!!!! Please pick me! I cant afford $500 ducats to purchase it! Hahaha. Thanks for all you do!

    Weddings! Especially when the bride is getting ready. (There is always some commotion going on and not having to set up lighting would help.)

    Also would be great for outdoor portraits in the shade. I live in the West and it can get real hot so, the shade of a grand old oak tree helps but, natural light can be too dark under the tree canopy and using the flash is too harsh.

You could have great light in their nursery, in mom and dad’s bed, on the couch with the family, etc. I love it; what a great product!

    Jimmy Arcade says:

    The Ice Light would be most useful in studio portrait photography, but I could also see uses for filling in shadows in outdoor lighting scenarios. For me personally, I mostly enjoy outdoor portrait session and it would really help me in lighting from underneath, so as to remove the harsh shadows under the nose, chin, and jaw line, as well as the upper part of the eyes. And then, of course, I would use it as a light-saber with my friend’s kids…just kidding.

    This is such a wonderful tool. Currently my lighting is non existing. I have used flashlights and speedlights. Since most of my clients are done on location portable lighting is important. The Ice light is super portable and the lumens are out of this world!

    The first time I saw the Ice Light was when Bambi Cantrell use it to augment Studio and Natural Light on Creative Live a couple of months ago. I have wanted one ever since unfortunately other things are priority.

    I typically shoot natural light and I think it would be a great portable fill light. Reflectors catch the wind and can be difficult on location this solves the issue.

    These are totally cool. I seen them in use at a workshop last year. Unfortunately they are not in my price-range right now.

    Valerie says:

    I think the Ice Light would help tremendously with low-light portrait work, as well as brightening up backlit subjects or evening out full sun/shadowing instances.

    Brian Miller says:

    This would work great for soft portraits, trying to get light into the shadowy ares would be much easier!

  848. 848
    Lauren Colsen says:

    I feel the ICE light would be most useful for on-location portraiture, for the scenarios where you need that extra kiss of soft wrapping light. It would help me get better images by ensuring that I could literally pull beautiful light out of my pocket!

  849. 849
    David Sharp says:

    I would definitely use the ice light for portrait and wedding photography. I often run into situations where this tool would give my images the extra light they need without using flash.

    I love the portability of this for newborn pictures so the tired moms don’t have to leave home to enjoy those precious newborn moments.

  863. 863
    Debbie says:

    I think the ice light would be great for dramatic portrait images, like fashion head shots… I’d use it for senior photography and for shooting images of my three girls when we do a concept shoot.

  872. 872
    Gabrielle Harrison says:

    I do a lot of macro and flower work, mostly using natural light. Occasionally I have shadows, depending on the time of day and would most definitely use this light to alleviate those shadows and enhance my photography. They sure are expensive! But they looks great.

  873. 873
    Grady Richardson says:

    I do primarily location shooting. This looks to be much more portable that the standard lighting systems, so it would be great for light control on location.

  874. 874
    Rebecca says:

    I would love to use this in newborn and hospital photo shoots. Sometimes you just don’t have enough room to set up a large light source, this would be perfect.

  875. 875
    Whitney says:

    Great for low light situations, and for creating mood in a shot.

  877. 877
    Vera Matson says:

    I definitely would use one of these! I would most likely use it for my HS senior work. Oftentimes, I’ll be shooting a senior and we’ll be on a roll, and we’ll be losing light at sundown. I’d love to be able to extend my shooting time and get some more portraits with the ice light!

  878. 878
    Laura Jens says:

    I have been drooling over this light since I first saw it. Love it! I could see so many uses for it. Being a natural light photographer as well, there are instances where you just need a little extra help because the light just isn’t “exactly” right. I think the Ice Light can and will provide just the right amount of kiss of light in those situations when needed.

  879. 879
    Jeffery Chavez says:

    I Would Use This Ice Light In My Wifes Creative Floral designs As Well As Smoke Photography.

  880. 880
    Joshua Harrison says:

    It would be best for portraits requiring mobility and flexibility, with special reference to urban portraits. The light can fit where an umbrella can’t, in a tight doorway, window etc.

    Wendy O says:

    Wow. How cool is this Ice Light and I could even carry with no problem. Thanks Jodi for a wonderful giveaway.

  882. 882
    Jaye says:

    I think I would use the light primarily in still-life shots and outdoor photography to get that extra “punch” and life.

  883. 883
    Erin Paxton says:

    The weight and small size is perfect for any photography where you are on the move. Macro shots at the botanical gardens and auto shows and conventions are the first things that come to mind.

    Diane Davis says:

    I am just a beginning photographer…trying to build up not only a budding business but also assemble the necessary equipment for whatever need may arise. The Ice Light would be a wonderful addition for those times when I am in a situation that calls for extra lighting.

  886. 886
    Sarah Tully says:

    I am new to photography, but I would live to use it indoors & outdoors on my own children. I especially want to try using the Ice Light on my son’s senior portrait this year.

  887. 887
    Tommy B. says:

    This would be great for some edgy senior portraits.

    This would be an awsome tool for Boudoir! Good luck everyone!

    Lana Lawrence says:

    Pinned, Posted to Facebook, Tweeted!! I love this concept. As a working photographer for several years on Capitol Hill, there were many occasions to use this light for portraiture. I can think of many uses for it, including video, and it would make an awesome addition to my lighting equipment.

    I also want to mention how important this equipment is to photogs with disabilities. Many of us who have worked the news beat for several years, or who have done extensive event work, have back problems, or other issues, and must lighten our loads to function. I tend to be a gear geek, and love gadgets, but have become more of a minimalist since becoming ill a few years ago. This light would help me tremendously, as I regain my ability to do shoots.

    And thanks for all of the great actions and tips on the website!! It rocks!!!

    I think the light would be very useful for the photography of flowers. It would add an extra dimension to their detail.

  894. 894
    Hannah says:

    I use only natural light in a studio. It would be so helpful to supplement light when I don’t have much natural light and I need to bump my ISO way up.

  895. 895
    Miki says:

    I think the Ice Light would be great for infant photography. Keep the lights dim & use the Ice Light to light what you would like featured in photography (face, hands, feet).

    I would love to use this even with low light when I shot my indoor flowers

    Lorna P says:

    Wow! The Ice Light look really wonderful. I am a grandkid/family photographer. My biggest struggle is taking pictures indoors (for holiday’s, etc). They are too grainy. I refuse to use a flash. I think this light would be wonderful to get just enough light in the room.

    Love this little light!
