I would se if someone here in your area couldn't help out and spend a day shooting LF with you. You could see what it entails.
LF is VERY different from....well....EVERYTHING. It is a quantum leap from 35mm.
Then again, to cheaply get into LF, just buy and old Crown Graphic and a couple of film holders. $2-300 should easily do that, and have a good, cheap, intro LF.
Plus those Graphics look REALLY cool....
