Infrared photography, along with the HDR photography demonstrates to the viewer things that the human eye is not able to perceive.

The Infrared photography technique notices infrared waves that do not belong to the regular visible spectrum.

There are two kinds of the Infrared photography techniques. Far-infrared photography and near infrared photography. The Far-infrared imaging technique is used to show the heat coming from objects.

At the same time, near-infrared photography refers to color manipulation and distortion. It makes images recognizable but unique and unusual because of the distorted colors. The photographs of Dannie Tjahjono look eerie and miraculously dreamy.The colors are rearranged in a creative way. Dannie Tjahjono works with landscapes and still-life photography. He distorts shapes and colors, makes things upside down, and mixes seasons, trying to convey an interesting message to the viewer.

The photographers who utilize this technique, use the infrared filter. The filter blocks certain wavelengths of light that allows to emphasize certain colors in the image. The so-called IR light is being used thankfully to the filter. The easiest way to obtain the infrared effect is to use processed E-6 film strip as  filter.
