to insulate or not to insulate?

Hi everyone,
I am the proud owner of a brand new Pro Tall Barn style Tuff Shed 10x12.
The shed is semi-shaded with the south wall getting the brunt of the sunshine. I live in the southwest where summer temps easily reach over 100. I will be using the shed as a storage/workshop and have a master-cool to use when the weather gets hot. I plan on installing electric,floor vents and a gable vent. I am unsure if I should insulate. I love the look of the exposed studs but if insulating the shed is worth it I will do so and finish with OSB. I'm not a fan of drywall! The winter weather here is tolerable and I do not plan on heating the space. If I do insulate, what product would be best. Aluminum,fiberglass or foam??
