Default Hard Drive/Storage/ File location issue MBP

Hey guys, not that it really matters but I have a MBP I picked up a little over a year ago.
I'm not an OSX or Mac expert at all, I just use it for school cause I gotta use it for some production stuff.
Anyways, here's the issue:

It says I have about half my HDD capacity allocated with "other" files, but I have no idea what it could be, the music, photos, apps, movies, all make sense but I have no idea what "other" could be that's taking up half my HDD space.
For sure I don't have that many working files (from video and audio editing software/projects, cause I know those can take up a lot of space)
Is there any way to see what's in "other" ?
How embarassing lol

Thanks! I just wanna free up some space on my HDD.
