Hello all, I have been wondering about this for some time. Personally I love to shoot in camera including lighting but I also know of the uses of log and especially in post, where I just completed coloring an entire documentary that included cinematic re-enactments. My question is this: 

With log, how much coloring is too much and when shooting log, how much should I try to do in camera? Is it based on the type of log or is that irrelevant?

Another Question: As a newer DP, how much should I rely on LUTs?
