I'm starting an Intro to Photography class (all b&w) but unfortunately I'm low on cash right now. I've got my kodak D-76, fix remover, wetting agent, and a Pentax K1000. They'll supply the fixer, tanks, darkroom, etc. I'm looking to save money on film and photo paper. The teacher recommended Ilford HP5 Plus ISO-400 film. I have a friend with a bulk film loader, so I'm looking at getting a 100' roll, which will be just about enough for the class. Would you recommend any cheaper substitutes (remembering that this is an intro class and I'm not aspiring to reach professional status at this time )? Also, I will need to purchase "b&w fiber-based, photo paper (at least 100 pack)" according to the syllabus. Can someone recommend me a nice balance of good vs. cheap paper? Thanks!
