If you don't mind, could you share with me how you change the
background color to B&W? thanks

It's probably fairly similar in Photoshop etc, but the way I did it in Lightroom (if I recall correctly) was to use the Adjustment Brush to desaturate the whole picture completely. Then use another Adjustment Brush and "resaturate" the appropriate bit with the AutoMask option turned on to reapply the colour to the correct part of the image.

Googling "selective coloring" is probably the best place to look.
