If you bury the conduit then you would need THWN wire, the W is for wet (underground) use. Some wire is marked THHN/THWN if I recall correctly, that's fine too. I would run an inch or inch and a quarter conduit, pull in 10 gauge conductors, don't forget a ground, and add mule tape. Then if you decide to add later you can use the mule tape to pull in some 6 gauge, or even a separate 12 gauge just for lights, and make the receptacles a separate circuit. I'd use LED lamps, they use lots less power! The larger size conduit will be there in twenty years if you want to add fiber optics or a big flux capacitor charging system. This is an open sided shed, I think your original plan would serve you we'll for now, and bigger conduit isn't much more expensive for 150 foot run. I'd put in a small sub panel now, with cgi breakers for what you're going to use now, and that would still allow you to bump up later if you need to.
Good luck with your project.
