What program are you working in?  There are usually several different ways to accomplish adding more contrast or less to your images.  Curves is only one way, but it can be very powerful.  First, you should practice adding control points, so that you can make changes to just a small part of the spectrum.  See how moving those points changes the "range" of adjustment.  Look at what an "S" curve with a central control point does to the image.

Only my opinion. It's worth what you paid for it. Your mileage may vary! ;-}
