Kodak Tri-X and and Ilford HP5 are far more forgiving for exposure errors.

Maybe start with them to get encouraging results and then move on to T-Max or Neopan to fine-tune your exposure skills.

Later on you could consider using slower film (around ISO 100), but a good rule is to get to know a film well before changing to another.

You could eventually consider developing your negatives at home (apart from chemicals, you need a developing tank, a thermometer and a room you can darken) and possibly scan them (wet printing would be ideal, but is more complicated and needs more equipment).
