I recommend normal developing without any attempt at "pull" processing. Primary reason is switching to proper film speed in mid-roll. Portra is pretty forgiving stuff. At least you erred in the correct direction with negative film . . . over-exposure. Could be much, much worse with under-exposure. Warn the lab about what happened and that they'll likely have to watch the printing of the over-exposed frames. You may see contrast and saturation increase in those prints compared to the properly exposed ones.

I just finished taking pictures of my grand son's foot ball team. I noticed that I had the film speed of my OM2S set at 100 and had 400 speed Portra film in the camera. In addition, I held the exposure to the plus side in the view finder when shooting.

Question, can the over exposure be corrected during printing or are the shots ruined? I saw the error after about 20 or so exposures, and then corrected the setting. Most of the shots were taken in natural light, but the last 5 or 6 exposures were used in the auto mode with a flash after resetting the film speed to 400.

Thanks for any advise
