    Look at the image sharing section here and study a lot of photographs. On your favorite images notice which film and developer they used. Try that as a starting point.

    Campy, take the suggestion to get some Arista Edu. You are going to make a lot of mistakes, including some really stupid ones. Don't make them with expensive film. Save the FP4 for later.

    Get a box of Foma 100 (Arista Edu) and burn through that. After having done that, you'll have some ideas and some experience. Just jump in and get on with it.

    The imaging chain is a long and complex thing. What you see on the web is not the same thing as holding a print in your hand. That's where the rubber meets the road, so to speak.
