Re: White background

Considering the space you're working with, it would probably be easier to do it in post production. Get it as close as you can in camera, but once in post finish it there.

If you're using PS, you can use the dodge tool set to Range highlights, Exposure around 8 or 10, and deselect Protect Tones.

A quick and sloppy example on a cropped version of your image:


And after about 3 minutes of work:

Of course it depends on the subject, etc., but If you shoot it with the intention of a clean, pure white BG, this technique works great. I've done it a lot even when I pretty much get the white BG down with my lighting. It's never pure white.
