    What kind of camera are you currently using?


    As for film, go to a store that sells film, and buy some. Color, black and white, 100, 200, 400, thats all up to you, It works just like a digital camera, all the settings are the same.

    I would get something cheap, to make sure the camera works and you like using it. If your curious to what a particular film will look like I have all of my shots broken out into sets on flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/randerson07/collections/72157606079271802/

    or you can just to a search on flickr to get an idea, but do remember these are scans and probably edited but you will get a good idea.

    I would start with a roll of regular c-41 process color film like 400 speed, for your first roll at least so you can just get it developed and see results right away.
    After that though you can dive into the world of developing your own rolls with black and white films :D
