Beginner looking for advice

No.3599560 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I'm a film enthusiast who bought an affordable camera hoping to make videos, but now wants to learn photography. These are some I've taken. My problem, besides finding the time, is that I'm not really sure what to shoot. I'm not that interested in landscapes (whenever I'm photographing nature, I always feel like I'd rather have a person somewhere in the shot
to make it more interesting), but street photography doesn't appeal to me because I'm not sure how to approach strangers (I know I hate having my picture taken, so I kind of imagine everyone else feels this way). That's why up until now I've mostly been taking photos of my immediate surroundings, people close to me and the occasional trip.

Hoping for both technical and non-technical advice, both encouragement and scathing critique.
