Nice! Pretty much any film would do, but make sure to buy the proper iso film. (100 day, 400 shady, 800 night).
I'm a big fan of Fuji's 400H and Superia 1600.
Nice colours, shah.
Nice camera have fun with it. Superia 1600 has been mentioned. I use that for low light. I use Kodak Ektar and Portra for most of my color film work. Ilford HP5 and SFX for black and white. Basically try out anything you can get your hands on and see what you like the best.
is that infrared or something shah?
That's not infrared. This is.
nope , no real post-processing either just a bit of shadow/highlight stuff. kinda made me think of a painting hah

Portra, always portra.
Great film for portraits for sure. I use Ektar for landscape photography.
Ektar's pretty unforgiving for beginners, it's very easy to get your exposure slightly off and end up with some strong blue colour casting.
It's not that bad as long as you stay away from underexposing it. The general consensus is the film should be rated as a 50 or 64 film instead of 100. Given this info if you shoot it at box speed and underexpose it things can get weird pretty quick. If you really overexpose it, + 1.5 or higher is when the saturation and color shift gets to be ridiculous. I shoot it at box speed and expose it at what the meter reads plus a 1/3 to half stop and it works great. Since it is film if you are seeing a color cast when it's exposed correctly you need to correct that with a filter. As a matter of course all my lenses have a UV-A filter on them. That takes care of that slightly bluish overtone quite well. Anything more than that requires the appropriate cooling or warming filters just like any other film. Now with that said if you blow it with this film you will know it for sure. It will not forgive your exposure mistakes like some other films do. Now I'll put this in some kind of perspective that makes a little more sense. The latitude of exposure for this film is more forgiving than you're typical DSLR. Sure you'll have a color shift and contrast issues at the extremes but that can be post processed out rather easily. What you won't lose is the dynamic range. Underexposing a DSLR by a stop usually isn't too terrible. Overexposing a typical scene by 2 stops usually means you use the delete button to fix it.
All true. I just don't think it's a good beginner film. Having said that, my only experience shooting it was in a ski resort in Bulgaria, and snow isn't very forgiving to shoot, other scenarios are probably easier.
