If your worried about light refraction, then put a very solid black background on the opposite side of the barrel from the camera, put a hood or shroud around the lens, and manipulate your light source according to camera angle, barrel positioning, etc. Have your light source pass by the barrel, and not through it onto a very dark, light absorbing background.
