Obvious, if you make a scene and act strange in public, people will noticed you. But if you just quietly, talk to your camera, people usually don’t care. Specially, now days where talking to your phone or camera is becoming very normal thing to do.

3. Find a quiet place
When you starting out, try to find a quiet place to vlog in public. It would be less distracting and you can hear yourself better in the video. But most importantly, you’ll have more confidence.
But some times, it is difficult to find a quiet place. If that is case, find a quiet time of the day to vlog. Some time, you just have to wait a few minuets for public to thin out. You just have to do your best.

People tend to be more passive and timid when vlog in public. This is because they feel uncomfortable and lose confidence. Make an extra effort to be more confidence and bold when you are vlogging in public. Your passiveness and timidness show right through your video. Being bold in the public takes lots to practice. It might takes some time for you to be bold in the public. Going back to the first point, you just have to do it.
5. Keep it short
Before you vlog in the public, think about what you are going to say before hand. Once the camera is recording, get to the point and be done with it. There is no point mumbling in the camera for long time in public. This would be less distracting around the public.
6. Opportunity to promote your video
When people do look at you funny, use the opportunity to let them know what you are doing, and promote your channel. There is good chance that they might actually look you up in Youtube and even subscribe to your channel. To make things easier, make a business card that you can pass out to others. You can even be more creative and wear custom T-shirt promoting your channel. Also it is good way to make new friends.
