Thanks for all of your imputs but I think I have my answer this morning. I didn't take any shots but did a bunch of readings cross referencing with my Canon 30D. Is reflective. I can't meter the incident light when the subject isn't even remotely near what I am standing. Needless to say, using the incident reading I would get overexposed shots. With metering with reflective lighting, I first meter off the sky since the reading should be constant. I then point my light meter to the scene in front of me. If I am getting no less than 1 stop difference, which means I am meaning off too much of the sky. Then, I point my light meter a bit towards the ground/water, I would get a bit more than 1 stop of exposure difference. That's the correct reading and I verified the reading with my DSLR and the historgram too.
