    Default When should we put -ing after a verb?

    Hi!

    I'm having a question, I would like to ask you.

    When should we add "-ing" after a verb?

    For example:
    "I saw the ship's guns
    , catching the light of the moon."
    "I saw the ship's guns
    which caught the light of the moon."

    Another question is:
    "I expected him loving me"
    " I expected him to love me"
    also:
    "I expected to love him"
    "I expected loving him"
