Learn to "LIE" with photoshop

The small space and the limited lights/diffusers will make it difficult and probably next to impossible. It would take an Ansel Adams to make it work, and even then he would heavily post process the image in the dark room.

You should absolutely optimize your lighting and settings and everything and you would still likely not have a good white background outcome.

That's when you go into LR/PS and "cook the magic in" to make the image like you want. LR/PS is not a substitution for good lighting but it is essential to give that 'final product touch'.

The easiest advice is worry about "white background" around the subject/model. Dark gray corners and sides can be easily cleaned up after. If you don't get the white behind the subject that's when photoshopping would be difficult and make things more frustrating.

Good luck
