I'll have to dig through to figure out which class, but here's how I do it:
Bring your photo into PS.
Modify the top layer to B&W (Images=>Adjustments=>B&W
(to be safe, I usually duplicate this again and then hide the layer, just in case I screw up)
With your black and white layer selected in the layers palette ... start erasing the part you want to be in color.
Hope this helps ... I'll try to figure out which lesson it is real quick ...
