While you should be using both brakes, remember that the front brake is for slowing down & the rear brake is for controlling.
On off camber, rocky, muddy & loose sections, stay off the brakes as you will lose traction the moment you tap the brakes. Brake before entering the section.
On sharp turns, there is a technique where you don't even need to use the rear brake to "drift" for changing directions. I forgot the term for it, but you could unweigh the rear wheel & push it either side for a direction change. Although these are racing techniques & not really recommended to be used on the trails during "regular" days - unless you plan on maintaining the trails afterwards.
the right equipment definitely helps alot! I jumped from a mechanical Hayes MX-2 & 8" V-Cut rotorswith Shimano LX Levers to the ultimate Hope MONO 6 Ti 203mm floating rotors with stainless steel brake lines filled with Motul RBF600 DOT4 fluid and modulation is like night & day! single finger braking, no brake fade or lever pump even on ultra long DH runs. It's just strong, consistent, confidence inspiring, stoppers that encourage late braking.
I don't have mountainbikes. I have MOUNTAIN CYCLES.
