I have a D5000 and I'm a shaky photographer especially taking vertical shots. Would a grip help steady me? Any preferred brands?

Grips with the extra shutter button are great for this as they let you keep your elbows tucked in like they should be. The added weight will help steady the camera.
I am a big fan of the Nikon grips, but their availability for the lower-end camera can be lacking.
