Many say beginners should start with b&w developing then move on to color. In my opinion it is the other way around. You should start with color developing as color is the most common media, and standardized, then learn b&w developing. B&W is much more involved with all its different developers, times, dilutions, papers, contrast control, zone system, etc.
