By adjusting the size feather of your adjustment brush you can explore how the individual sliders alter the smaller areas of tones in your image as opposed to being confined to global image adjustments. If you are using Photoshop to adjust areas of your image then I think it is best to keep things as simple as possible rather than making things unnecessarily complicated. The method I have used for many years involves using simple selections and curves. I find the easiest way to make a selection of an image is with the Lasso tool (See Image right).
As with Lightroom we can set the size and feather of our lasso and make individual selections of various parts of our image. When you have made your selection you then choose a new Curves Adjustment Layer in the Layers palette (See image left).
