I've weighed a lot of different possibilities on how to start performing for strangers more often, and I think the best step for me is going to be guerrilla style street magic—approach someone in a public place, show them a quick effect, then leave. What I'm looking for is ideas on how to actually approach people and raise their interest. I've seen suggestions ranging from bringing some friends and having them react to a trick, to having a someone there carrying a camera and letting the spectator know that you plan to post the trick on YouTube. Only problem with the carry a camera plan is that no one I know owns an actual video camera these days, and a phone isn't useful for generating interest in the same way. Anyway, I'd appreciate any tips that you might have. If I have a solid plan in place, I think I'll be less nervous.
