Shoot wit the film you are used to, for me I use PanF+, FP4+ and HP5+, but one think that I ALWAYS use when it portrait is a yellow filter. Using this filter will fix skin blemishes, and create smooth soft skin tones. It will also effect blue (darken it a bit) and if someone is blond the hair will be given more intensity.

My setup is 95% of the time 120 camera (Hasselblad), 100mm Planar lens, distance ring, yellow filter
