    Hi Skyler95. Try this:


    Scenario 1:

    -  duplicate your image so that you have 2 layers

    -  apply Adjustment-> Black&White to the top layer

    -  Switch to the Eraser Tool and erase areas you would like to have colored. (NOTE: You can tweak your eraser brush settings (e.g. Opacity, Hardness) as needed)


    Scenario 2:

    - switch to the Paint Tool

    - choose Mode -> Effect

    - select Black&White effect

    - paint areas with black and white



    Let me know if its working for you.




    BTW: If your base image is B&W you can paint e.g. with Tint effect or apply a Replace Color Effect to a selection
