Why the rule of thirds sucks

Hi everyone,

The latest Youtube video is online and deals with several subjects I like : composition and misconceptions. 

Why the rule of thirds sucks tackles the composition principle that everybody knows and why it is one of the worst tool to learn composition, and also one of the most limiting when it comes to making better images. 

Fun fact : the rule of thirds we read about everywhere nowadays is not even the one conceptualized 200 years ago, but a completely dumbed down version of it. 

So if you still use this tool thinking you're doing good, I hope you'll enjoy this video and find some better ways to tackle composition for your next shots, or at least have a better understanding of the many limitations of this tool and myths that have been built around it for the past decades.
