Black and white - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I have always been a color photographer but want to try to shoot black and white. Any suggestions for film stock to use? Any suggestions on exposure etc. I need to have a base to start with. Thanks all!...

    I like Ilford and T-Max films. If you can get a good exposure on color,
    you can get a good exposure on B&W. Same basic rules apply.

    B&W is very good for the do-it-yourselfer. You can achieve a lot with
    very little machinery/chemistry.

    First: develop the films yourself. If you do not want to, buy a b&w film
    for the C-41 process - XP2 is often mentioned for this purpose.

    I'm trying to reproduce some of the prints I made from film in B&W. I've
    scanned the negs but I'm not getting the depth and full tonal range of what
    I have done with photo paper ( I had 9 stops or zones before). The scans
    files are TIFF and about 18MB in size (they seem to have the full tonal
    range on the screen). Should I make the prints a duotone using black or a
    dark grey as the second color?
    I'm using a HP DeskJet 5550 with the photo cartridge (I tried it with the
    black cartridge also).
    Thanks for your help
    John

    I use Ilford Delta Professional film, 400 or 3200 speed. Many
    professionals swear by the 3200 which I love-- especially if you use the
    3200 but shoot it at 800.
