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
