$y=\frac{1}{(x+2)^2}-1$ $\:$ $ $

Work Step by Step

$y=\frac{1}{x^2}$ Moving the graph down by $\ 1\ $ unit will change the $\ y\ \rightarrow\ y+1$. And moving it to the left by $\ 2 \ $ unit will change the $\ x\ \rightarrow\ x+2.$ So the equation of the shifted graph would be: $y+1=\frac{1}{(x+2)^2}$ $y=\frac{1}{(x+2)^2}-1$
