    Don't try to get fancy at first. A 24 exp roll of Kodak or Fuji ISO 200 print film will do. You can get it processed almost anywhere.

    Your first challenge is to learn your camera well enough so that you can concentrate more on the subject than on the camera. When you use a hammer to drive a nail, you concentrate on the nail head -- not on the hammer.
