Lol, probably not a solution to this one, not that I can think of anyways. Show us the “cluttered” pictures, then we will see.

Instead of trying to shoot a “wide” shot and getting everything in the photo, divide your shop into sections. If you are using a true wide angle lens, you won’t get a lot of detail. By going with more of a “normal” lens, you won’t have as much clutter and the detail will be much better. I hope this helps.

You could also crop the things you don’t want out of the pictures.
