Hopefully Portra 400. You can add the 80A filter, but it takes 2 stops as everyone has said. You can use flash, I would suggest one studio flash into an umbrella and a second head for the background, reflectors where useful. Since you are photographing people, that is is the best suggestion I have, if it moves use flash. You can also forget the filter. But you could also get LED panels with diffusers to augment the existing light, soften it too. Then you still have the filter and long exposures. Where's Polaroid when you need them? That is how I used to test lighting.

Use a digital camera to test lighting.

Another suggestion, switch to black and white.

Tell us what you end up doing
