ditto on the Velvia... You may consider shooting Fuji Provia F100 (it is a daylight film); it is very sharp, good, but not overdone saturation. It is also a lot easier to get processed. If you don't already have lighting equipment, you could get yourself a transluent and a siver reflector from your local camera store; I carry one of each everywhere, and they are inexpensive.
