There is no good way to lighten a photo in InDesign. Your best bet is to edit the image in Photoshop and then update the link in InDesign.

You seem to be describing a color mangement problem. If the print output is too dark relative to the soft proof display, either the destination CMYK profile is wrong, or your system’s monitor profile is not an accurate, or a combination of both. InDesign converts all color into your monitor profile for the soft proof display, so it has to be accurate.
