In the following: An up the skirt angled camera shot.
Where should the hyphens go?
Up-the-skirt, or up-the-skirt-angled, or skirt-angled? Or none of the above?
Just 'up-the-skirt'. I've never heard or seen 'angled' used in that context; 'up' is directional anyway, and in this context it obviously refers to an angle. Of course you could just say 'sad', 'pathetic', 'indecent', immoral', 'illegal'... and avoid the issue of hyphenation altogether.
