When you find a photograph you want to make(I'd recommend using a tripod, just to keep the camera in the same position), find your exposure, and then close down(and moving shutter speed accordingly to keep the same exposure(1/4 @ f8 is the same as 1/15 @ f4, etc....)
Shoot from F2.8(wide open) down to F22/32, whatever the lens's smallest aperture is.
Move in full-stops, don't worry about 1/2f-stop movements.
Process said film(I'd shoot all 10 shots of the same thing, remember, KEEP NOTES!)
Scan/print said film, whichever way YOU do your post-processing workflow(analog or digitally).
Make your own comparisons. What works for joe-schmo in XYZ location might not work exactly the same for YOU in ZYX location, etc...
YOUR OWN EMPIRICAL DATA is CRUCIAL to YOU getting the most out of YOUR OWN equipment and film stock(s) of choice.
