    Anna,
    Try this book "Black and White Photography A Basic Manual" Third Edition, Revised by Henry Hornenstein.

    It is available at Amazon.com for less than $20 new, and cheaper used. It is the best intro to photo book I have ever seen for the price. There are more expensive books out there, but this book will give you everything you need to help get you started. It covers everything from camera controls to printing and developing film.

    some times the prints from the b&wCN (c-41 b/w) can have a pulpleish blue color to them because they usualy print the photos on color paper but once you haave you darkroom set up your prints will look better (no purple color) just to give a heads up

    I just use Ilford Ilfostop, which has no scent, and also has a dye in it to tell you when it is used up. You can also rinse the film a few times between development and fixing.
