I have just had a Minolta Dynax 5 with 28-135mm Sigma lens bought for
me and now i'm chafing at the bit to go and get some good photo's,
however im not really clued up on everything and would appreciate some

1. is there any particular speed of film that i should use, i.e ISO
100, 200, 400 or other?

2. Is there any speed of film that is more suitable for landscapes, or
close-ups etc?

3. i need to find out more about apature and shutter speeds and there
effects etc

4. i also need to find out about any photography course that i imagine
would answer of the above question
