is it photography?

I've been wanting to get better in photoshop;  quite honestly I have been avoiding learning because I prefer to shoot and not spend hours on the computer.  I realize that in this day and age it is important to master photoshop to move with the times and obtain more work.  My solution:  take pictures of textures and combine with my body of work to create interesting photos or pieces of photo-art while teaching myself photoshop.  I'm not sure whether I would call this photography and quite frankly I don't care because the creative juices are flowing.  I have spent the past week running around taking pictures of textures to combine with portraits.  A whole new world is opening up to me because now I see a photography as a layer potential layer of many photographs.  Here are my first attempts in what I am calling "Cooked Photography."

I'm going to follow your lead on this one and see what I end up with.
