I’m guessing that you read “of my drawing” as referring to the process of drawing the photograph, which would indeed make no sense.

My interpretation is that this sentence means “I drew something, then took a photograph of the drawing. This is that photograph.”. I think “This is a photograph of my drawing.” is a perfectly acceptable English sentence describing such a situation.

@CK, "drawing" in this case, as explained by MTC above, refers to something that I drew (as a painting etc).

Yes, thanks, MTC and Eldad explained that well.
