I am a life long Pro Photog, now retired almost 20 years & I for one do not miss the darkroom, wet process one bit. Coming home smelling of Fixer, manipulating printing the best way still has it's limits before it starts to look fake. We were among the first to use digital in the late 80's, there is so much more that can be done in digital post processing than the wet process. Would never go back, don't miss it at all...!
Welcome to UHH. I've found that digital and film are very similar in the manner of f-stop, ISO, and shutter speed. Now, where they differ is in what one meters. Spot meter for the highlights and place them in the Zone you wish. However, it takes a bit of testing to determine your camera's ability to handle the additional exposure. Blowing highlights is the major sin one wants to avoid. That's it in a nutshell. But, much like film, this requires testing.https://www.uglyhedgehog.com/user-page?upnum=1628

Started in photography in 1972. SRT-101. Shot professionally over the years and for fun. I found Canon to be the easiest digital camera to learn. Great array of lenses too. Fabulous glass.
Welcome to the Hog, enjoy.
Welcome to the forum.
Welcome to UHH LRK, glad you joined us. I also started out in film a long time ago. Unlike you I enjoy fooling with my images in Lightroom 6, beats the old smell of the chemicals and the hassle I had to go thru to set up my dark room at night in the kitchen.
Have fun, learn and enjoy the forum.
Welcome to UHH. Search youtube for tutorials on the software you have. There are quite a few tutorials on Youtube from various people. Anthony Morganti, Julieanne Kost, Jim Nix are a few, as well as others. You can watch the videos and follow along.
