Hi guys,
I'm quite ashamed of using you eminent cinematographers help so promiscuously with stupid questions. But I hope you don't mind that much. Maybe in a perfect world somewhere down the line I can get the opportunity to help you.
Anyways, so I'm shooting a timelapse with my Super-8 camera of a sunrise. And my internal lightmeter is not functioning so I can't take a spot measure. I have a external light meter (the minolta IV F, a great little tool) and was wondering if there's anyway possible that I can get the exposure correct for the sky only? That is, I don't even care if the sorroundings gets horribly underexposed, I would actually prefer if the sorroundings were almost black. I myself can't think of any way to achieve this so I'm just inquiring on what you guys would have done?

Cheers, all help appriciated!
