Personally, I do all effects and color treatment in post - but that can be time-consuming.

Generally, I don't leave home without a .3 and .6 ND (Neutral Density) filter, to control the amount of light hitting the lens without having to stop down the iris.

That way you can upen up the iris (although I'm not sure there's actually an iris on the PD150...) to keep a short depth-of-field which you usually want for interviews.

Are you mostly shooting interiors?

For outdoors something like a Tiffen Ultracontrast and a polarizer are handy. I'm not a big fan of grads, although an ND grad can come in handy to avoid blown-out skies.
