GIT log for current branch
By default the git log will display commits from the parent branch as well as the current branch. Just like all git commands, this is meant to be a reasonable default which you can configure to suit your needs.
What I have found most useful is to show commits between two commits. What this means is that the following will display commits from the current branch only:
git log master..wip
Equally simple is showing commits made today:
git log —since=yesterday
There are a few other options related to date ranges and authors which I encourage you to check out the help file:
git help log
