    Anyway, I know nuts about portrait shots so I will not pretend to be an expert here. Hahahaha.

    There are good uses of battery grips... one of which is when you are shooting timescapes, star trails or remotely, and you are shooting multiple exposures over a long time remotely. A grip will ensure you have enough juice, so you do not have to disturb the placement (or slider movement) to replace the batteries.

    Another adv of battery grip you do not need to remove cam from tripod to change batt.
