Question about Tamron Cameras
What mount do you have on the Tamron lens? (The built-in mount.) If it has a Nikon mount, you don't need an adapter at all. If it has the Adaptall mount then the adapter should fit onto the back of the lens, then the combo should fit onto your Nikon camera. If the lens has a different mount then nothing you can do will make it fit.
Does the adapter fit onto the lens?

Testimonial: "I'm very new to the whole camera/lens stuff, so please be patient. Then lens will not fit on my camera (I can't get it anyway), the mount I purchased fits my camera but not the Tamron Lens. As far as what kind of mount the lens has, I have no idea, other than I was told it would fit my camera. Thanks for all your help!!!"

You probably have to set the aperture manually on the lens, because it
might not have CPU contacts. I think changing the aperture on the
camera will probably have no effect, so just try twisting the aperture
ring to wide open.
You usually have to set the aperture at the minimum setting (highest number) so that if the camera is choosing the aperture, it can stop down to the required value.
No good having it set at f2.8 if the shot needs f11.
If the lens is very old, it might have a manual iris that you have to set yourself on the lens. The lenses that stop down automatically will have a tiny peg on the mount that a suitable camera can operate. Gentle pushing of this peg while looking through the lens will tell if it is stopping down - set it wide open first.
If you have a depth of field preview button, this will also have the same effect with the lens on the camera if the body matches up with the lens.
